Juror in James ‘Whitey' Bulger Trial Sends Letter to Judge on Behalf of Catherine Greig

One of the jurors from the federal trial of James "Whitey" Bulger is once again making headlines, this time for a letter she sent to the judge who's sentencing Bulger's girlfriend, Catherine Greig.

Janet Uhlar, also known as Juror No. 12 in the Bulger trial, isn't afraid of speaking out.

During Bulger's sentencing, Uhlar went in front of television cameras to criticize the government for what she perceived as a lack of transparency during the trial.

She also claimed to have written letters to Bulger following the trial, but would not say what those letters were about.

Now she's written a letter to the judge presiding over Greig's sentencing to ask for leniency.

In the letter to Judge F. Dennis Taylor, Uhlar writes in part, "Ms. Greig has no criminal record beyond harboring Bulger."

She went on to say that Greig refusing to speak "does not mean that there are names to reveal."

Greig pleaded guilty to federal criminal contempt of court for refusing to testify before a grand jury about her and Bulger's whereabouts while they were on the run, and whether other people helped them during that time.

Greig could face up to life in prison when sentenced, which is scheduled to happen on April 28.
