Whitey Bulger's girlfriend pays federal fine


Catherine Greig, who spent 16 years on the run with Boston mobster James "Whitey" Bulger, has paid a fine of $150,000, court records show.
Greig, 61, who received an eight-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to identity theft and other crimes, is now incarcerated in a minimum-security federal women's prison in Minnesota.
Court records reveal she paid the federal government $150,063.44 last Friday, The Boston Globe reported.
As a result of the payment, the government has dropped liens on Greig's bank account -- with a balance of about $115,000 -- and on her sister's house in Boston's Dorchester neighborhood, the Boston Herald reported. Greig raised the money for the fine by selling her own house in Quincy.
Greig's lawyers say she is appealing despite her guilty plea. Bulger, 83, is awaiting trial on a long list of crimes, including 19 killings.
The couple were arrested last year in Santa Monica, Calif., where they had been living quietly under assumed names for more than a decade.
