Prosecution rests in 'Whitey' Bulger trial

Friday, July 26, 2013 - 10:00pm

 The prosecution in the federal trial of alleged mobster James "Whitey" Bulger rested its case Friday, after calling 63 witnesses over 30 days.

Bulger is charged in the deaths of 19 people during two decades. He also faces charges of extortion, racketeering and money laundering.

Bulger rose to the top of the notorious Winter Hill gang, prosecutors say, before he went into hiding for more than 16 years after a crooked FBI agent told him in December 1994 he was about to be indicted on federal racketeering charges.
