Jurors consider 'Whitey' Bulger's fate for 3rd day

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) — Jurors in the Boston racketeering trial of reputed crime boss James "Whitey" Bulger have resumed deliberations for a third day.

The federal jury went back into a room to continue deliberations Thursday after asking some legal questions a day earlier.

On Wednesday, jurors asked if they had to make unanimous findings on each of the 33 criminal acts included in a racketeering charge. Those 33 acts include 19 murders.

Judge Denise Casper told jurors they had to be unanimous on whether prosecutors have proven or not proven each act. But she also told them they could choose to make no finding on certain acts if they cannot agree.

On Thursday, the judge granted a request from prosecutors to urge jurors to try to make findings on each racketeering act if they "can do so conscientiously."

    Heavy thunderstorms swept through the tri-state on Sunday causing flash floods and lightning strikes that injured 3 people. The three men were struck at Orchard Beach in the Bronx Sunday afternoon and were being treated at a local hospital. Meanwhile, various Labor Day weekend celebrations were interrupted, delayed and even canceled as the U.S. Open tennis tournament had to be postponed and the Electric Zoo musical festival on Randall's Island had to be prematurely shut down.
