Whitey Bulger’s girlfriend sentenced to 8 years in prison

The girlfriend of James “Whitey” Bulger was sentenced to eight years in federal prison Tuesday for identity fraud and helping the reputed mob boss avoid capture for 16 years, CNN affiliate WCVB-TV reported.

Catherine Greig, who prosecutors said was Bulger’s partner in avoiding capture, also must pay a $150,000 fine, U.S. District Judge Douglas Woodlock ruled, according to WCVB.

Bulger and Greig were captured at their Santa Monica, California, apartment a year ago. He faces trial later this year in connection with 19 slayings allegedly committed in South Boston during the 1970s and ’80s.

Prosecutors say Bulger, who is being held without bail, was the head of a South Boston Irish gang before he fled an impending racketeering indictment in 1995. He evaded law enforcement for 16 years before he and Greig were arrested.
