July 15, 2010 A 70-year-old civil rights lawyer was sentenced Thursday to 10 years in prison in a terrorism case by a judge who boosted her original sentence by nearly eight years after concluding she lied to a jury and lacked remorse.

"I'm somewhat stunned," Lynne Stewart told U.S. District Judge John G. Koeltl after he announced the sentence for her conviction for letting a jailed Egyptian sheik communicate with his radical followers despite restrictions in place to prevent it.

The sentence, nearly four times longer than the two-year, four-month sentence she originally received in 2006, left Stewart sobbing in her prison uniform after Koeltl described his reasons for increasing the prison time significantly.

An appeals court had ordered a new sentencing, saying the terrorism component of the case needed to be considered, along with whether she committed perjury at her trial. The court said it had "serious doubts" whether her original sentence was reasonable.

The judge said public comments Stewart made after her first sentencing showed him that the "original sentence was not sufficient." He said she showed "a lack of remorse for conduct that was both illegal and potentially lethal."

Well lets hope they put her in the general population then. Do the inmates in women's prisons take care of problem inmates like this??

Beats me. Everything that I know about women's prisons comes from Sybil Danning/Linda Blair movies.

Yes and no. Female inmates don't engage in sexual assault to the same degree male inmates do, but they do get nasty with the male officers-even when the male COs have not done anything wrong, the females still accuse them of it. And, just like Migs and his semen, women have nasty body fluids/no longer sanitary items that they can fling at their enemies.

What I'm wondering is if they'll beat the shit out of her terrorist enabling ass.
