It might not be over yet for notorious mobster and convicted killer James “Whitey” Bulger and his former associates.

Prosecutors in Massachusetts are exploring whether they can charge Bulger and others with murder and other crimes now that the federal trial is over, the Boston Globe Press reports.

One associate that faces potential criminal charges is Patrik Nee, who was named as an accomplice in several murders but never charged.

Bulger was convicted Monday on murder and racketeering counts in federal court.

“We’re always looking for evidence that can help us investigate and prosecute Suffolk County homicides,” Jake Wark, a spokesman for Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley, told the Globe in a statement.

Patrick Nee literally wrote the book on mob life.

And despite serious allegations that he was involved in drugs, guns and even helping bury a body, Nee remains free of jail.

The Boston Globe reports that Nee is expected soon to testify in the murder and racketeering trial of reputed mobster James “Whitey” Bulger.

The one-time well-known figure in Boston’s underworld has indicated he will invoke his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination.

But Bulger’s attorneys said they have no plans to ask self-incriminating questions, the Globe reported.

Sure, Patrick Nee has been connected to five murders in the trial of reputed gangster James “Whitey” Bulger.

But that hasn’t stopped the Disney Channel from featuring Nee on a reality show on the Discovery Channel about bookies in Boston, the Boston Globe reports.

“I’m absolutely disgusted,” said Tommy Donahue, the son of a man whom Nee is accused of helping murder.

He said he can’t understand why the feds aren’t pursuing Nee.

“His name has been thrown around a dozen times, and the government hasn’t done anything about it,” Donahue said.
