    Federal judge freezes assets of Catherine Greig

    US District Court Judge Douglas P. Woodlock on Thursday approved a request by federal prosecutors to freeze the assets of Catherine Greig, the girlfriend of James “Whitey” Bulger, until she is sentenced on June 12 for helping the notorious gangster stay on the run for 16 years.

    Prosecutors argued in court documents that Greig has about $115,000 in a bank account as well as interests in a Quincy home and in her family’s South Boston home that could be tapped for fines.

    Greig faces a total of as much as $750,000 in fines and 15 years in prison after pleading guilty to three counts related to her time with Bulger on the run.
