Although notorious mobster James “Whitey” Bulger was convicted of 11 murders, the victims of 19 homicide victims want to be heard during sentencing in November, The Boston Globe reports.

Bulger’s attorney, J.W. Carney Jr., initially considered opposing the request but acknowledged there’s not much he can do.

“Federal law permits family members of alleged victims to speak at sentencing, even if the government was unable to prove that the defendant was responsible for their loved ones’ death,” Carney told reporters outside the federal courthouse in Boston.

Each family speaker will be given 5 to 10 minutes to talk during sentencing.
