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.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Carl Stevens reports

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.
