BOSTON (WPRI/AP) — February 3. That’s the date the girlfriend of Boston mobster James “Whitey” Bulger is scheduled to plead guilty to criminal contempt charges.
The U.S. Attorney’s office Tweeted out the information Wednesday afternoon
Catherine Greig already is serving an eight-year prison term for helping Bulger avoid capture during his 16 years on the run.
Defense attorney Kevin Reddington told a magistrate judge earlier this month his client would plead guilty to the one-count contempt indictment.
Prosecutors allege she disobeyed a judge’s order to testify before a grand jury investigating whether other people helped and harbored Bulger.
Bulger and Greig were living in Santa Monica, California when they were captured in 2011.
Bulger was convicted and sentenced to life in prison. He argued he was unable to fully present his defense at trial.
