Civil Rights Lawyer Sentenced to 28 Months (Lynne Stewart)
WINS News ^ | 10/16/06

Posted on 10/16/2006 11:33:35 AM PDT by areafiftyone

NEW YORK -- Civil rights lawyer Lynne Stewart was sentenced to 28 months in prison in federal court in Manhattan Monday. She was convicted of providing support to terrorists by helping a jailed Egyptian sheik communicate with his followers on the outside.

Before sentencing, her lawyer told the judge that any prison sentence for Stewart would be a death sentence because of her serious health problems.

Stewart pleaded with the judge to allow her to live out the rest of her life "productively, lovingly, righteously.''

Assistant US Attorney Andrew Dember rejected defense suggestions that Stewart's conduct was judged differently after
9-11.

"This case had nothing to do with September 11,'' Dember told the judge. "What she was doing was smuggling terrorism messages and smuggling out Abdel-Rahman's responses.''

When Stewart arrived at the courthouse this morning, about 150 supporters chanted "Free Lynne, Free Lynne.''

Federal prosecutors say she had released a statement by Omar Abdel-Rahman, a blind sheik sentenced to life in prison after he was convicted in plots to blow up five New York landmarks and assassinate Egypt's president.

Bah. That's a slap on the wrist for what she did. Should have been for much more.

If the liberals don't kill us...liberal judges will. This is a travesty the woman gave info from a terrorist to his henchmen on the outside.
Hopefully the prison is better at meting out punishment than this judge was.

I agree she should have gotten at least 20 years or more. I'll find out who the judge was.

If I were the judge, I'd have doubled the sentence right then and there.

If it's 28 months, she'll be out in 10, less time already served, make that about 6 months.
Not bad for basically committing treason.

Hopefully her self imposed death sentence will come to be.

Somehow I doubt it. A sweet book deal will probably follow.

WHO CARES if she was judged differently because of 9/11? I HOPE she was! A lot of things have changed since 9/11, but a lot of things that should have changed have stayed the same.

No doubt the judge in the case was probably appointed by Clinton or Carter. Five years after 9/11 and this happens.

She can do that all in prison as he does pro bono work filing frivolous lawsuits for other convicted scum.

Stewart was convicted in 2005 of providing material support to terrorists.

Convicted over a year ago? Just now sentenced? And credit for time served?

Send her to GITMO. This would certainly qualify as torture to our Muzziy friends down thee.

We could tell them that she is the first installment on their 72 Virgins. And that when they die, the next 71 virgins all look like Helen Thomas.

Anybody remember “Cousin Oliver” from the waning days of “The Brady Bunch”?

I imagine he would look like this coming out of rehab at the age of 70.

Treason is now on the same level as failing to use your turn signal. Those charged with enforcing our laws almost entirely ignore it.
