'Jihad Jane' Faces Life Sentence for Terror Plot

Monday, 06 Jan 2014 06:37 AM

A woman who called herself "Jihad Jane" and helped suspected terrorists overseas faces the possibility of life in prison at her sentencing this week in Philadelphia.

A federal judge must decide if 50-year-old Colleen LaRose of Pennsburg, Pa., presented a real threat to the U.S. or was easy prey for extremists seeking followers with U.S. passports.

LaRose admits she plotted to kill a Swedish artist over a cartoon that offended Muslims. Prosecutors will seek a long sentence Monday despite her extensive cooperation.

LaRose, who called herself "Jihad Jane" in videos posted on YouTube, returned from Ireland in 2009 to surrender to the FBI.

Jamie Paulin-Ramirez of Colorado and Maryland teenage Mohammad Hassan Khalid are also due to be sentenced this week.

Khalid, arrested before he turned 18, is the rare juvenile held in federal custody.
