In explosive testimony yesterday convicted murderer Stephen Flemmi accused his former partner Whitey Bulger of being a degenerate pedophile as reported by The Boston Globe: "'he had a young girlfriend, 16 years old, he took her to Mexico,' said Flemmi, telling jurors that he and Bulger shared a 'weakness' for teenaged girls." The FBI previously alleged that Bulger was "'a true predator in every sense of the word' and said he was suspected of molesting a number of girls, some as young as 12, in the years before he fled Boston in 1995."
On Monday Flemmi admitted that he had sex with his own 16-year-old stepdaughter who later was murdered -- allegedly by Bulger as Flemmi watched -- over concerns that she "had learned too much about their criminal operations" as reported by Edmund H. Mahony for The Hartford Courant.
Flemmi is serving a life sentence for ten murders, and agreed to testify for the government against Bulger to avoid the death penalty.
Sexual deviancy is relatively common among the mobster set.
For example, Jimmy "the Monk" Allegretti from the Chicago Outfit and Salvatore "Sally Burns" Granello from the Genovese family both had notorious reputations for forcing themselves upon young teen girls, and Gambino capo Robert DiBernardo was the largest child porn distributor in the country.
