A troubled Pennsylvania woman who called herself "Jihad Jane" online and plotted to kill a Swedish artist was sentenced Monday to 10 years in prison after telling a judge she had been consumed by thoughts of a Muslim holy war.
Colleen LaRose, 50, faced a potential life term. But Chief U.S. District Judge Petrese B. Tucker gave her credit for her guilty plea and her help in the indictment of two others.
Prosecutors asked for decades in prison, fearing she remains highly vulnerable to manipulation. But LaRose told the judge, "I don't want to be into jihad no more." (AP)
