Catherine Greig continues to stand by her man. The longtime companion of convicted mob boss James “Whitey” Bulger was indicted today in U.S. District Court in Boston in connection with her refusal to testify before a grand jury.
Prosecutors indicted 64-year-old Greig on one count of criminal contempt. The indictment alleges that from December 9, 2014, continuing through September 22, 2015, Greig refused to testify before a federal grand jury about whether other individuals assisted Bulger and her while he was a fugitive from 1995 through 2011.
“Ms. Greig was ordered by the Court to testify before a grand jury about whether others assisted Mr. Bulger while he lived on the lam for 16 years,” United States Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz told reporters. “By refusing to comply with that order, Ms. Greig has committed a new crime and this indictment seeks to hold her accountable. The grand jury is entitled to her testimony and flouting a federal court’s order has substantial consequences.”
“Catherine Greig has yet again failed to do the right thing,” said Joseph R. Bonavolonta, Acting Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Boston Field Division. “Her refusal to testify has hindered the FBI’s efforts to seek justice for the victims of his crimes. Our efforts to find those who assisted them during their lives as fugitives will not stop despite the fact that Ms. Greig has refused to testify.”
The pair was arrested in June 2011 at their home in Santa Monica. Inside the residence agents found more than $800,000 in cash, false pieces of identification, 30 firearms, including pistols, rifles and shotguns and several knives.
In 2012, Greig was convicted of identity fraud and harboring Bulger and sentenced to eight years in federal prison.
James “Whitey” Bulger is serving two consecutive life terms plus five years after having been found guilty of racketeering and involvement in eleven murders.
