BOSTON (AP) — The longtime girlfriend of reputed Boston crime boss James “Whitey” Bulger has pleaded not guilty to helping him elude authorities during 16 years as a fugitive.

Catherine Greig entered her not plea Thursday in a brief appearance in U.S. District Court.

She also waived a reading of the indictment.

She was indicted last week on a charge of conspiracy to harbor and conceal a fugitive, a crime that carries a maximum sentence of five years.

The 60-year-old Greig has been held since she and Bulger were captured in June in Santa Monica, Calif.

WBZ-TV’s Sera Congi reports.

Bulger has pleaded not guilty to participating in 19 murders.

Greig’s lawyer has described her as a subservient woman who was in love with Bulger and unaware of the extent of his alleged crimes.

    You honestly think that people believe that she didn’t know the extent of his crimes she knew exactly who he was and what he did. She wanted to be with him so she ran with him. She deserves to be in jail along with him. Never did she think of the victims of his crimes.

    Why isn’t she being charge as an “accessory after the fact” in all the murders.She had to have know something.
