‘Whitey’ Bulger’s girlfriend, Catherine Greig, faces 10 years prison

KABC | June 8, 2012

BOSTON — Federal prosecutors on Friday recommended that Boston mobster James “Whitey” Bulger’s longtime girlfriend be sentenced to 10 years in prison for knowingly protecting one of the region’s most violent criminals for more than 16 years.

In a sentencing memo filed in U.S. District Court, prosecutors said 61-year-old Catherine Greig hid Bulger’s identity and handled the daily tasks necessary for them to keep a low-profile in Santa Monica, where they were captured last June living in an apartment.

Bulger, 82, was the leader of the notorious Winter Hill Gang. He was charged with participating in 19 murders and is awaiting trial.

Greig pleaded guilty to three charges in March and was scheduled to be sentenced Tuesday. She admitted using multiple aliases and obtaining Bulger’s prescription medications by pretending to be his wife.
