Imprisoned girlfriend of Boston mobster Whitey Bulger files appeal, wants less prison time

The longtime girlfriend of former Boston mobster James "Whitey" Bulger (BUHL'-jur) has filed an appeal aimed at shaving time off her prison sentence for helping him while he was a fugitive.

Catherine Greig (grehg) pleaded guilty to charges related to helping Bulger stay on the run for 16 years. She's serving an eight-year sentence at a low-security federal prison in Minnesota. Her lawyer said Wednesday people who claim their relatives were killed by Bulger shouldn't have been allowed to speak at her June sentencing.

Bulger is 83. Greig is in her 60s. They were posing as married retirees from Chicago when authorities arrested them in Santa Monica, Calif., last year.

Bulger is a former Winter Hill Gang leader and FBI informant who fled Boston in 1994. He's charged with participating in 19 murders. He has pleaded not guilty.
