Former DEA agent doubts James Whitey Bulger had immunity
(FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) - In the case against James Whitey Bulger, is it possible that the mobster had immunity to commit all crimes, including murder?
The accused South Boston mob boss' lawyer claims he has proof that someone in the Department of Justice granted Bulger immunity, and he plans to call Bulger to the stand to testify at his trial.
FOX 25's Bob Ward spoke with Pamela Hay, a former DEA agent who hunted Bulger when he was a fugitive. She is now a private investigator and teaches at Boston University.
Hay said she did not believe that Bulger had immunity and that no one has a license to kill. She also added that she did not think any member of the FBI or the DEA would make that type of promise to an informant.
Former Boston U.S. Attorney Michael Sullivan told FOX 25 that he didn't grant Bulger immunity, and he doubts anyone else did.
