Bulger Juror: I Couldn't Acquit

Juror No. 5 in the Whitey Bulger case has come forward, saying “if you could believe all the testimony, and believe what you heard—I don’t see how you couldn’t find the person guilty.” Bulger, 83, was convicted Monday of 11 murders and other charges, including racketeering and conspiracy. The juror, Scott Hotyckey, said that at least one person in the jury box had trouble with the credibility of some of the witnesses, especially former hitman John Martorano. The credibility problems helped lead to Bulger’s being acquitted of eight of the 20 murder charges against him. Bulger will be sentenced on November 14, and could still face possible death penalty charges in Florida and Oklahoma, as he was found guilty in federal court of murders in those states.
