Whitey's gal refuses to cooperate with authorities

James “Whitey” Bulger’s girlfriend, who is accused of helping the reputed former crime boss elude authorities during 16 years on the run together, will not cooperate with law-enforcement authorities in their case against him, her lawyer said yesterday.
Catherine Greig’s lawyer, Kevin Reddington, made the remark after Greig pleaded not guilty in federal court to a charge of conspiracy to harbor and conceal a fugitive.
Prosecutors say Greig actively helped Bulger escape capture, but her attorney says she was in love with Bulger and wasn’t aware of the extent of the notorious mobster’s alleged crimes when she fled with him in 1995.
Bulger is accused of participating in 19 murders while heading up Boston’s notorious Winter Hill Gang.
The couple was apprehended in Santa Monica, Calif., in June, more than 16 years after Bulger fled.
