Catherine Greig, girlfriend of Boston mob boss James “Whitey” Bulger, pleaded guilty to a federal criminal contempt charge on Wednesday. Not to mention, she wasn’t depicted in Black Mass—the Bulger movie starring Johnny Depp—which is bullshit.

After 16 years on the run with Bulger until they were caught in Southern California in 2011, Greig was indicted in September in Boston when she refused to tell a grand jury who helped the duo stay off the grid, according to the Daily News. She’s expected to be sentenced on April 28 and is currently serving an eight-year sentence for helping her boyfriend remain on the run.

Elsewhere, Bulger was convicted of racketeering charges in 2013 and given a life sentence, which he’s spending complaining about Depp’s portrayal of him in Black Mass and writing high school kids.

Oh Donnaaaaaaa! Donna Strunk!!!

She’s never going to say a word because she’s going to get out of prison someday and people who rat on Whitey tend to run into misfortune.
