Feds seek long sentence in ‘Jihad Jane’ case

PHILADELPHIA — Federal prosecutors are asking for a lengthy prison sentence for a Pennsylvania woman who called herself “Jihad Jane” online.

Prosecutors say in court papers that Colleen LaRose should spend decades behind bars for plotting to kill a Swedish cartoonist whose work had offended Muslims.

Prosecutors say LaRose’s sentencing should serve as a deterrent to “other lonely, vulnerable people who might be enticed by online extremists promising fame and honor.”

LaRose and two others convicted in the plot, Jamie Paulin-Ramirez of Colorado and Maryland teen Mohammad Hassan Khalid, face sentencing next week.

LaRose faces a maximum of life in prison. The others could get up to 15 years in prison for conspiring to provide material aid to terrorists.
