James ‘Whitey’ Bulger’s Girlfriend Sentenced to 21 More Months in Prison

The longtime girlfriend of Boston gangster James “Whitey” Bulger will spend an additional 21 months in prison for refusing to testify about whether anyone else helped Bulger after he fled the city.


Prosecutors asked a federal judge to sentence Catherine Greig to three more years in prison.

Catherine Greig is already serving an 8-year sentence for helping Bulger during his 16 years on the run. They were captured in Santa Monica, California, in 2011.

She pleaded guilty to a criminal contempt charge for refusing to testify before a grand jury. Her lawyer argued that no more than six months should be added to her sentence.

The 86-year-old Bulger was convicted in 2013 for playing a role in 11 murders. He’s serving a life sentence.
