Notorious mob boss James “Whitey” Bulger complained in recently obtained letters that his trial was a sham and “revenge for corrupting two FBI agents,” The New York Daily News reports.

A week after he was found guilty of murder and racketeering, Bulger wrote a letter to his friend on Aug. 20 that details Bulger’s feelings on the trial and his time in jail.

“The trial was a neck and tie party and a stacked deck from day one,” Bulger wrote.

At least, he wrote, he has “lots of time to read and think” inside the Plymouth Correctional Facility.

“I am off the scene and not much I can do for anyone out there,” he wrote in longhand, according to the Daily News.
