BOSTON (AP) - The lawyer for the longtime girlfriend of Boston mobster James "Whitey" Bulger is asking a judge to sentence her to 27 months in prison for helping him stay on the run for 16 years.
Prosecutors have asked for a decade in prison for Catherine Greig (grehg), who faces sentencing on Tuesday.
Greig pleaded guilty in March to charges of conspiracy to harbor a fugitive, identity fraud and conspiracy to commit identity fraud.
The 82-year-old Bulger is awaiting trial on charges he participated in 19 murders.
Authorities captured the couple in Santa Monica, Calif., last June.
Prosecutors say the pair posed as retirees from Chicago and had a stash of more than $800,000 in cash and 30 weapons in their apartment when they were apprehended.
