Will reputed mobster James “Whitey” Bulger testify in his own murder and racketeering trial?

Some experts believe it may be too hard for Bulger to resist.

“He’s already done-in. He’s going to die in prison,”  James McDonald, a lawyer for corrupt FBI agent John Connolly, told the Boston Herald. “This is the time to say what he’s going to say.”

But defense attorneys said it would be damaging if Bulger testifies in his own trial.

“From a defense attorney’s perspective, I’d rather he not take the stand,” William Kickham, an attorney and courtroom commentator, told the Boston Herlad.

“The risk of cross-examination is always very high. However, I think Whitey Bulger knows the chances of him walking away from this a free man are zero to none. I don’t think Bulger will be able to resist.”

Today, the defense takes center stage after prosecutors rested their case Friday.
