Jihad Jane sentenced to 10 years for cartoonist death plot

The New York Times reports that Colleen LaRose, AKA Jihad Jane, who plotted to kill Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks, has been sentenced to 10 years.

The woman, Colleen R. LaRose, had faced the possibility of life in prison, but Judge Petrese B. Tucker accepted a government request to reduce the sentence, because of her cooperation with investigators.

Ms. Larose, 50, of Pennsburg, told the judge that she used to think about jihad from morning to night, saying she was “in a trance.”

She was sentenced to 10 years in prison plus five years of supervised release. She could be out in a little more than four years, having already served more than four years and with the potential for time off for good behavior.
