A federal appeals court today ordered a convicted terror-coddling civil rights lawyer to begin serving her prison sentence.You'll remember Wart has spoken at various rallies in her defense over the years, and she, repaying the favor, came to his trial last spring. They also joined forces recently to defend the no doubt soon-to-be-convicted "San Francisco 8," Black Panthers charged with the murder of a police officer 38 years ago. Others Wart has helped keep in jail are Mumia Abu-Jamal and Lenny "Still in a Cage" Peltier. LoveStruggle!
The 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan upheld Lynne Stewart's conviction upon announcing its ruling.
Stewart, 69, was convicted in February 2005 of conspiracy and providing and concealing material support of terrorism for her actions in smuggling messages from "blind sheik" Omar Abdel-Rahman to his followers in the Islamic terror group Gama'a al-Islamiyya.
Update: Yes, she was sentenced to only two years, which I suppose means one actually served. Oh well.
Update II: According to Wikipedia, charges against four of the Frisco (as natives call it) 8 were dropped in July.
Update III: Natsui?
