A Florida court will weigh the racketeering  conviction of   former FBI agent John ”Zip” Connolly

By Shelley Murphy


The fate of former FBI agent John J. Connolly Jr., who is imprisoned for his role in a murder involving gangster James “Whitey” Bulger, will be considered by all 10 judges of Florida’s Third Circuit Court of Appeals.
