Bulger’s lawyer seeks more time to review evidence
The attorney for alleged fugitive mob boss James “Whitey” Bulger said he needs more time to review the “massive” amount of evidence provided to him by the government.
Speaking to federal magistrate Judge Marianne Bowler, J.W. Carney Jr., requested another status conference in November.
“There’s a significant amount of discovery from the government that I’m going through,” said Carney, Bulger’s attorney.
Bulger was not in court for today’s hearing.
After the hearing, Carney said the evidence included thousands of documents such as FBI reports and transcripts.
When asked about an update on Bulger, Carney said he is doing well.
“Mr. Bulger is doing well. He’s been treated .. fairly,” he said.
