Boston Mobster Whitey Bulger Wants Delay in Trial

The lawyer for suspected mob boss James “Whitey” Bulger is asking for a big delay in the case for his client, saying the suspect believes his legal conversations are being recorded, the Boston Herald reports.

“Bulger has a view, based on his personal experience that all levels of law enforcement are corrupt and will disregard the law if it suits them,” his defense lawyer J.W. Carney wrote in a filing Wednesday asking a federal judge to delay the trial by a year to November 2013. “The defendant no longer has any faith that the attorney-client privilege will be honored in telephone or mail communications, and the discussions with counsel now take place only at the jail.”

Bulger also says the U.S. Attorney’s office obtained a private letter to his lawyer.

Carney also said the investigation was disorganized.
