Former Boston mob boss James "Whitey" Bulger's girlfriend will spend an additional 21 months in prison for refusing to say if anyone helped the couple evade capture during their 16 years on the run, a U.S. federal judge ruled on Thursday. Bulger, now 86, is serving life in prison after being convicted of charges including 11 murders he committed or ordered while he ran the Winter Hill crime gang in the 1970s and 80s. "History will, I think, remember Bulger as a monster and if she chooses to be loyal to that person, that is her affair, but I don't need to respect that loyalty," U.S. District Judge Dennis Saylor said.
