The girlfriend of James “Whitey” Bulger, who is accused of helping the Boston mobster elude authorities for more than 16 years, may end up pleading guilty, the Boston Globe reported.

Girlfriend Catherine Greig has indicated she wanted to cop a plea to harboring a fugitive, the Globe reported. Bulger, who was an FBI informant, is accused of murdering 19 people in the 1970s and 80s.

The Globe reported that the brother of one of those victims said that a victims’ advocated for the U.S. Attorney’s Office told him about Greig’s intentions. The Globe reported that it was unclear if she would be compelled to testify against Bulger, who goes to trial in November.

Greig and Bulger were captured last summer in California.
