BOSTON (AP) -- The longtime girlfriend of former Boston mob boss James "Whitey" Bulger has pleaded guilty to helping him evade capture during 16 years on the run.

In a deal with prosecutors, Catherine Greig pleaded guilty Wednesday to charges of conspiracy to harbor a fugitive, identity fraud and conspiracy to commit identity fraud.

Bulger has pleaded not guilty to charges he participated in 19 murders. Greig was captured with him last year in Santa Monica, Calif.

Each of the three charges Greig pleaded guilty to carries a maximum sentence of five years, but prosecutors told families of people believed killed by Bulger that Greig could face less than three year in prison under federal sentencing guidelines.

Greig's plea agreement doesn't require her to testify against Bulger.
