Greater Boston Video: 'Whitey' Bulger Trial Jury Pool Down to 70

June 11, 2013

The jury pool for the James "Whitey" Bulger trial is at 70 as of Monday, June 10. Adam Reilly reports on how quickly Judge Denise Casper and both parties might whittle the number down to 18, 12 of whom will be the primary jurors and six of whom will be alternates.  

Reilly says one reason jurors could be dismissed is if they have an opinion about Bulger's guilt or innocence. Another is physical or emotional distress. But vacations, work conflicts and weird life circumstances won't cut it, as Reilly explains.
