Court rules Catherine Greig’s sentence justified

A federal appeals court rejected Friday Catherine Greig’s assertion that she was unfairly sentenced to eight years in prison last year for helping her longtime boyfriend, James “Whitey” Bulger, evade capture for more than 16 years.

The US Court of Appeals for the First Circuit concluded that Greig, now 62, had done more than merely shelter Bulger while he was on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted list, eluding a sweeping federal racketeering indictment in Boston charging him with participating in 19 murders.
