BOSTON (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Convicted Boston mobster James "Whitey" Bulger's attorney says jailhouse love notes between his client and the woman with whom he spent 16 years on the run moved both to tears.

Attorney J.W. Carney told a gathering of Massachusetts defense lawyers Wednesday that Bulger thought prison officials would never allow him to write to the woman, Catherine Greig.

Carney offered his legal pad to Bulger, and Bulger wrote a note that Carney hand-delivered to Greig at the detention center in Rhode Island where she was serving time for helping Bulger evade authorities.

She wept as she read and wrote a reply, which also made Bulger cry. He told Carney that one of his greatest regrets was never marrying Greig.

Carney says the exchange was not illegal.
