Feds seek harsh sentence for Mass. mobster's lover

Prosecutors will ask a judge to sentence the longtime girlfriend of mobster James "Whitey" Bulger to more prison time than federal sentencing guidelines recommend

The Associated Press

BOSTON — 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. They also asked for a hearing to present evidence against Greig.

Greig's lawyer wouldn't reveal his sentencing recommendation.

The couple was apprehended last June in California. Bulger is charged with participating in 19 murders.
