Pa.’s Jihad Jane faces life in Dec. in terror plot
FD Editor’s Note: This is truly a terrible case. This woman had no plans to go and harm anyone, she was targeed by the FBI for whatever reason. It’s bad enough she was arrested, but to get life is just terrible! Please remember that “admitting to a crime” is not really admitting to the crime but is often part of a plea agreement. Often prisoners go this route because they are told if they do not harm could come to their families, and also that they will get much more time if they do not agree. And I am wondering how this happened with this sister. When we find out, we will publish it. She is loved by a lot of people. This is the time to pray for her – and write to her!

Pennsburg resident Colleen LaRose has been in custody since she returned from Ireland to surrender to the FBI in 2009.
Her arrest was kept secret until several other people were rounded up months later. A Maryland teenager has been charged.
Court papers show the 48-year-old LaRose called herself Jihad Jane in an online video and said she was “desperate” to help Muslims.
LaRose pleaded guilty to conspiracy to murder a foreign target and support terrorists and lying to the FBI. The murder plot wasn’t carried out.
Prosecutors said Monday LaRose’s sentencing will be Dec. 19 in Philadelphia. Sentencing had been set for this month.
LaRose’s lawyer hasn’t returned a message seeking comment.
