BOSTON (AP) — A federal judge has turned down a request from the twin sister of mobster James “Whitey” Bulger’s girlfriend to lift a lien on her South Boston home, saying the house could be used to pay court-ordered fines.
Prosecutors say Catherine Greig (grehg) had a part-interest in the home before she transferred it to her sister, Margaret McCusker, after Greig was arrested with Bulger last year.READ MORE: CDC Says Fully Vaccinated People May Meet Without Masks Or Social Distancing
