(NECN) - Convicted gangster James "Whitey" Bulger has been sentenced to two consecutive life terms, plus five years, in prison.
Bulger will be spending the rest of his life behind bars, and all sides in the trial sounded off on their experience. The prosecution saw the moment as a victory and the defense saw the trial as a way of exposing government corruption.
Families of victims expressed both joy and sorrow as they celebrated his sentencing.
For more on the final outcome, we were joined by Attorney Margaret McLean.
She said, “Yesterday was a big day for law enforcement.”
She said to listen to Judge Denise Casper wrapping up the case was very emotional and rewarding.
“It’s time for Boston to move on,” she said.
She said the chance for a successful appeal is not good, but the appeal will be pushed through the process as soon as possible. She said the big issue in the appeal will be the immunity issue.
