Bulger’s Girlfriend Seeks Bail Before His Trial

BOSTON (AP) — A lawyer for the girlfriend of former reputed Boston crime boss James “Whitey” Bulger says she should be let out on bail while awaiting trial.

Catherine Greig’s attorney, Kevin Reddington, says she is not a danger to the community and will not flee if released.

Reddington says in court documents that Greig and her twin sister are both willing to post Massachusetts homes they own as collateral.

Greig and Bulger were apprehended last month in Santa Monica, Calif., after allegedly spending the last 16 years on the run together.

Reddington says prosecutors “will have a difficult time” proving that Greig harbored Bulger as a fugitive. He says Greig could be placed on electronic monitoring and home confinement to assure her appearance in court.

Prosecutors have said they will argue against her release.
