Whitey Bulger moved to Arizona prison
If he hadn’t already been convicted and sentenced to life in prison, it’d appear James “Whitey” Bulger was on the run again.
Bulger, the 84-year-old convicted Boston mob boss, has been moved yet again to a new federal prison facility.
The federal Bureau of Prisons recently updated Bulger’s location status. He is now in a facility in Tuscon, Ariz.
USP Tuscon, or United States Penitentiary, is described on the Bureau of Prisons website as a high-security facility with an adjacent minimum security satellite camp. Together, both facilities hold about 1,700 male inmates. A prison spokesman said Bulger is being held in the high-security facility, according to the Globe.
Bulger was most recently being held in a facility in Oklahoma. Before that he was taken to a facility in Brooklyn, N.Y. after his conviction. During his trial he was being held at the Plymouth County Correctional Facility.
