(NECN) -  A second week of testimony will wrap up Friday in the James ‘Whitey’ Bulger trial, with more victims expected to take the stand.
Thursday, eight people were questioned in front of the jury.
Our Bulger trial insider, Attorney Margaret McLean's been in the courtroom every day.

She joined us with insight on the new testimonies.

She said the new testimonies were emotional and told stories of love and suffering.

Eight people took the stand Thursday.

She said that the defense did not want to cross-examine a victim because it would make them look like bullies.

McLean said that the government’s plan to use Ralph DiMasi as a witness backfired because he complained to the court about the sentence he served compared to others like former hit man John Martorano, who received a deal from the government.
