BOSTON (AP) - Reputed Boston gangster James "Whitey" Bulger (BUHL'-jur) says he'll forfeit the guns and $822,000 in cash that officials found in his California apartment, but he wants to keep one thing: a Stanley Cup ring.
In a document filed last week and signed by Bulger, the 83-year-old said the ring commemorating the NHL championship series was a gift from an unnamed "third party."
The document said both sides have agreed to not include the ring among the assets Bulger must forfeit. It asks the court to make a final decision.
Bulger was arrested in Santa Monica, Calif., in 2011 after 16 years on the run.
The jury is in its fifth day of deliberations in the trial of Bulger, who's charged in a 32-count racketeering indictment that includes 19 killings.
