Boston.com on June 7, 2012 released the following:
“Federal prosecutors will ask a judge to sentence the longtime girlfriend of mobster James “Whitey’’ Bulger to more prison time than federal sentencing guidelines recommend for helping him elude authorities for 16 years.
It wasn’t immediately clear Thursday how much prison time prosecutors would request for Catherine Greig, because their sentencing memo was sealed.
Greig faces a maximum 15 years in prison. But prosecutors have indicated she could get as little as 32 months under federal sentencing guidelines.
In a public filing Thursday, prosecutors said they will request a sentence exceeding federal guidelines and also asked for a hearing to present evidence against Greig.
Greig’s lawyer wouldn’t say what he will recommend for a sentence.
The couple was apprehended last June in California. Bulger is awaiting trial for his alleged role in 19 murders.”
