Ex- crime boss gives teens advice
Former Boston crime boss James “Whitey” Bulger had some advice for three high school girls who wrote to him for a history project: Crime doesn’t pay.
The 85- year- old sent the handwritten letter, dated Feb. 24, from federal prison in Florida, where he is serving two life sentences, the Boston Globe reported.
“My life was wasted and spent foolishly, brought shame and suffering on my parents and siblings and will end soon,” Bulger wrote.
He went on to write: “Advice is a cheap commodity some seek it from me about crime — I know only one thing for sure — If you want to make crime pay — ‘ Go to law school.’ ”
Bulger was convicted in 2013 on racketeering charges that included playing a role in 11 murders.
