How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Florida Prosecutors Ask Appeals Court to Reinstate Murder Charge Against Ex-FBI Agent Connolly

Whitey Bulger

Disgraced FBI Agent John J. Connolly Jr., whose murder conviction was overturned by a Florida state court panel two weeks ago, won’t be released from prison – at least not yet.

Boston’s NPR station, WBUR, reports that Florida’s attorney general is urging the court to reconsider reinstating charges against Connolly, who is accused of participating in a plot to kill a Florida businessman in 1982 at the urging of Boston mobster James “Whitey” Bulger.

The three-judge appellate panel tossed out the murder conviction, citing a legal technicality.

NPR reports that Connolly won’t be released from prison until the court decides on Florida’s request.

Connolly is serving a 40-year sentence that began in 2011.
