Boston mob boss convicted but other criminal, civil cases pending

The trial is over and Boston mob boss James "Whitey" Bulger stands convicted.

But other criminal cases and civil lawsuits promise to keep him in the spotlight.

Bulger was convicted Monday in 11 killings and a host of underworld crimes.

At 83, he is certain to get what amounts to a life sentence. But the death penalty remains a possibility in two other states, Florida and Oklahoma, where Bulger is accused of murder.

He's promised to appeal his conviction, and his attorneys say he has secrets to tell about corruption in law enforcement while he was running a gang.

On top of all that, Bulger is involved in pending civil litigation.
