Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (WHDH) - Thursday afternoon lawyer’s for Whitey Bulger announced that the convicted murderer and mob boss is seeking an appeal.

In the appeal, which will be filed on August 14, Bulger will argue that his right to a fair trial was prejudiced by erroneous rulings of the court and omissions from the government before and during the trial.

Last August the 84-year-old was convicted of playing a role in 11 murders and was sentenced to two consecutive life sentences plus five years.
