Whitey Bulger Went to Brooklyn
Whitey Bulger won’t be spending Thanksgiving in the land of the cranberry bogs and Pilgrims. He was transferred from his Plymouth jail cell to a federal prison in Brooklyn today.
Though authorities did not offer a reason for his move, and it doesn’t seem likely to be his final destination, reports point out that he has been wanted to stand trial in Florida, where he could face a death sentence for alleged murders. The 84-year-old is currently serving two life sentences in prison for a federal racketeering charge (He plans to appeal.)
Have a very Brooklyn holiday, Bulger.
