Catherine Greig expected to plead guilty to federal contempt

The longtime girlfriend of gangster James "Whitey" Bulger is expected to plead guilty to a federal contempt charge this week.

A change-of-plea hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.

Catherine Greig is already serving an 8-year sentence for helping Bulger avoid capture during his 16 years as a fugitive.

Prosecutors say she disobeyed a judge’s order to testify before a grand jury.
