The longtime companion of convicted mobster James "Whitey" Bulger will plead guilty to criminal contempt charges in early February, the U.S. Attorney's office confirms.
Catherine Greig, who is already serving an eight-year prison term for her role in helping Bulger avoid capture for 16 years, will plead guilty on Feb. 3.
Her lawyer, Kevin Reddington, previously said his client would plead guilty to the charge during a hearing earlier in January.
Bulger and Greig were in Santa Monica, California, when they were captured by federal law enforcement in 2011.
Bulger was sentenced to life in prison.
