Winter Hill Gang
Eighty-three-year-old Howie Winter, a predecessor of Whitey Bulger as head of the Winter Hill Gang, was ordered held on $25,000 bail Friday.
J.W. Carney Jr. told U.S. Magistrate Judge Marianne Bowler that it will be “impossible” for him to read hundreds of thousands of documents by Nov. 5.
Lawyers for mobster James “Whitey” Bulger are due in court to update a judge on a long-running dispute over evidence turned over to the defense by federal prosecutors.

The FBI has enlisted the help of another federal law enforcement agency in the hunt for fugitive Boston mob boss James “Whitey” Bulger.
