Officials try to freeze assets of Bulger’s girlfriend
BOSTON — Federal prosecutors are trying to freeze the assets of mobster James “Whitey” Bulger’s girlfriend to cover any fine she may be ordered to pay when she is sentenced for helping Bulger evade authorities for 16 years.
They have asked a judge to order a garnishment of any assets belonging to Catherine Greig held by Eastern Bank, according to court documents.
Mr. Donato said he believes there’s a strong likelihood Greig will be ordered to pay a fine when she’s sentenced in June. He has asked a judge to order any Greig asset held by Eastern Bank to be paid to the government if a fine is ordered.
“The money will maintain a status quo … and the same thing with the real estate,” Mr. Reddington said. “It’s not going anywhere, I assure the court of that.”
U.S. District Court Judge Douglas P. Woodlock did not immediately rule on the request.
