Lawyer: Bulger Girlfriend Won’t Cooperate

BOSTON, Aug. 18 (UPI) — Catherine Greig, longtime girlfriend of Boston mob boss James “Whitey” Bulger, entered a not guilty plea to conspiracy Thursday.

Greig’s lawyer, Kevin Reddington, said after the brief hearing that his client has no intention of cooperating with the prosecution of Bulger, The Boston Globe reported.

Bulger, 81, and Greig, 60, were arrested in June in Santa Monica, Calif., where they had been living under assumed names for years. Bulger faces a long list of state and federal charges, including numerous homicides, while Greig faces up to five years in prison if she is convicted of conspiring to harbor and aid a fugitive.

Reddington told U.S. Magistrate Judge Jennifer Boal he hopes to get bail for his client. He described Greig, now in a federal detention facility in Rhode Island, as an excellent candidate, saying she has no incentive to flee.

“She’s looking forward to putting this behind her,” Reddington said. “She’s a very strong woman. She’s looking forward to getting out and being with her family.”
