Trial Date Set For James ‘Whitey’ Bulger’s Girlfriend Following Her Santa Monica Arrest:

Catherine Greig, the long-time fugitive boyfriend of James “Whitey” Bulger, who was arrested with him in Santa Monica on June 22, has had her trial date set for April 23, 2012.

The date was set this morning after prosecutors met with her defense attorney Kevin Reddington.

The 60-year-old was not present at the status conference held in a Boston federal court.

Last month Greig pleaded not guilty to charges that she conspired with Bulger and others to conceal and harbor the 82-year-old during the 16 years the pair were on the run together.

She now faces up to five years in prison, three years of supervised release and a $250,000 fine if convicted. She currently remains behind bars.

Prosecutors said they anticipate filing additional charges against Greig, according to court documents filed yesterday.

Bulger and Greig were arrested at their residence in the 1000 block of Third Street with a stash of about 30 firearms and $822,000 in cash hidden in holes in the wall of their apartment.

Bulger had been on the FBI’s 10 most wanted fugitive list for more than 15 years.

He fled Boston in the mid-1990s as FBI agents were about to arrest him in connection to his role in nearly two dozen murders committed from the early 1970s through the mid-1980s.

Bulger’s role in these murders is also tied to his leadership of an organized crime group that allegedly controlled extortion, drug deals, and other illegal activities in the Boston area.

An interim status update has been set for Greig and her defense team on Nov. 29.
