BOSTON (AP) — The longtime girlfriend and fugitive companion of James “Whitey” Bulger will be arraigned on a contempt charge for refusing to tell whether other people helped the Boston mobster during his 16 years on the run.
The Boston Globe reports (http://bit.ly/1Q9vH2m ) 64-year-old Catherine Greig will be arraigned Oct. 19 in federal court in Boston.
She’s already serving an eight-year sentence for conspiracy to harbor a fugitive, identity fraud and conspiracy to commit identity fraud.
An indictment alleges that from December 2014 until last month, Greig disobeyed a judge’s order to testify before a grand jury in an investigation into “third parties” who assisted and harbored Bulger.
