After all these years, family and friends of victims killed by convicted mob boss James ‘Whitey’ Bulger will finally have their say in court this week.

More than a dozen relatives of Bulger’s victims want to speak during his sentencing Wednesday, the Boston Globe reports.

“I just want Whitey Bulger to know the person he killed,” said Donahue, whose husband, Michael, was killed by Bulger in 1982. “He knew nothing of my husband. He knew nothing of my family.”
