BOSTON (CBS) — Some families of James “Whitey” Bulger’s victims called his sentencing ‘anti-climatic’ while others said the sentence brought them closure.
Thursday morning, Bulger was sentenced to two life sentences plus five years and was ordered to pay $19.5 million in restitution to the families.

Money many of the families said they couldn’t care less about.
“That old bastard is finally going to prison,” Tommy Donohue, son of victim Michael Donohue said. “Today’s the first day we can get on the road for closure, it’s a damn good feeling.”
