Reputed Mass. mobster girlfriend rethinking plea



BOSTON (AP) — The brother of one of reputed mobster James “Whitey” Bulger’s alleged murder victims says he’s been told by a representative for federal prosecutors in Boston that Bulger’s girlfriend Catherine Greig (Grehg) is considering pleading guilty to helping Bulger evade capture.

Steven Davis tells The Boston Globe a federal victim advocate told him Friday that Greig’s lawyers indicated she’s considering pleading guilty without a plea bargain and prosecutors asked victims’ relatives to meet with them Monday.

WCVB-TV first reported Davis’s comments.

Messages were left Friday for Greig’s attorney, the U.S. attorney’s office, and Davis.

Greig has pleaded not guilty to conspiracy to harbor a fugitive.

Bulger and Greig were captured in June in California after 16 years on the run. He has pleaded not guilty in connection with 19 killings.
