The placing of former FBI Agent John Connolly—convicted of racketeering and other charges earlier this year—in virtual isolation at the Kentucky prison to which he was sent appears to be part of a move by the Justice Department to get Connolly to “talk” in exchange for a possible reduction in his 10-year sentence.

The assumption behind this is that Connolly knows much more about the notorious Whitey Bulger case and it is only a question of time before the embittered ex-agent coughs up one or more others the U.S. Attorney’s office in Boston has targeted in its ongoing pursuit of the South Boston mobster.
