James "Whitey" Bulger, the alleged mob boss and Top Ten Fugitive who had been on the run since the mid-'90s, was arrested almost 2 years ago June 2011, at the Princess Eugenia apartment complex in Santa Monica. His longtime companion, Catherine Greig, was also arrested.

Yesterday the trial began in Boston, with his brother, William former president of the Mass State Senate attending the trial. The trial is expected to last 3 months.
Here is an expert from the Washington post story by Michael Rosenwald, 





BOSTON — James “Whitey” Bul­ger is an old man now. He is 83.
He wears reading glasses. His hair is pure white, but not much remains. And when he stood up in a federal courtroom Wednesday morning to finally face the music, to stand trial for a lifetime of gangster crimes, he rose slowly, no longer the menacing Irish mob boss who allegedly scratched out 19 lives while the FBI looked the other way.
