Bulger victims speak out in Greig sentencing

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) - Five family members delivered emotional victim impact statements Tuesday as Catherine Greig waited for a U.S. District judge to hand down her sentence.

Relatives of those who prosecutors say were killed or threatened by Boston mobster James "Whitey" Bulger asked a judge to sentence his longtime girlfriend to at least a decade in prison for helping him avoid capture for more than 16 years.

Greig would receive half of their requested sentence. Judge Woodlock sentenced Greig to eight years in prison with three years of supervised parole. She was also ordered to pay $150,000 in fines.

Tim Connors says his father, Ed, was killed by Bulger 37 years ago to the day. He called Greig "as much a criminal as Whitey" and asked the judge to sentence Greig to the maximum allowed by law, 15 years.

Prosecutors have asked for a decade in prison for Greig. Her attorney sought a more lenient sentence of 27 months.
