BOSTON (AP) — The judge who sentenced the girlfriend of James “Whitey” Bulger to another 21 months in prison for refusing to testify before a grand jury says Catherine Greig had a “twisted” kind of loyalty to the Boston gangster.

Judge Dennis Saylor IV called Greig “defiant” and “unapologetic.” He rejected her lawyer’s argument that her only crime was falling in love with Bulger.

The judge called Bulger a “serial murderer” and said it’s “hard to imagine a less worthy object of affection than Bulger.”

Bulger is serving two life sentences on racketeering charges, including his role in 11 murders. He has denied the crimes.

Greig’s lawyer says Greig does not believe Bulger committed all the crimes he was convicted of in 2013.
