Judge indicates that longtime girlfriend of Boston mobster Bulger will get longer prison term
BOSTON (AP) ' A judge deciding the sentence of the longtime girlfriend of Boston mobster James "Whitey" Bulger has indicated that he will side with prosecutors on a longer prison term.
U.S. District Court Judge Douglas Woodlock said Tuesday that Catherine Greig's (grehgz) role in helping Bulger stay on the run for 16 years involved "more than mere harboring."
The 61-year-old Greig pleaded guilty in March to charges of conspiracy to harbor a fugitive, identity fraud and conspiracy to commit identity fraud.
The 82-year-old Bulger is awaiting trial on charges he participated in 19 murders. Authorities captured the couple in Santa Monica, Calif., last June.
Prosecutors have asked for a decade in prison for Greig. Her attorney is seeking a more lenient sentence of 27 months.
