September 5, 2006 -- Seeking a 30-year prison term for terror lawyer Lynne Stewart, prosecutors argued the attorney engaged for more than two years in "extremely dangerous and devious" conduct to help blind Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman communicate with followers despite U.S. efforts to silence him.
Stewart's "egregious, flagrant abuse of her profession, abuse that amounted to material support to a terrorist group, deserves to be severely punished," prosecutors wrote...to the Manhattan federal judge who will sentence her next month.
Stewart was convicted in February 2005 of providing material support to terrorists by releasing the statement of her client, Abdel-Rahman, who was imprisoned for life after being convicted of plotting to blow up New York City landmarks.
Her lawyers argued in July that Stewart should receive no prison time. They said a harsh sentence would frighten other skilled lawyers from representing notorious clients and that Stewart's three decades of distinguished work for indigent clients should speak louder than a single serious mistake.

She should be a very haggard Hag when she gets out. In fact, put Medea Benjamin in the cell with her for the $600,000 she gave to the Iraqi Insurgents.
Never fear.... I'm sure that the next Dem President will pardon her.
warms the cockles, it does...
Now, how about the NYSlimes, Rockyfella, etc...
I think she already got some sort of delay on the sentencing due to her health. I can't imagine she can serve all that time; yet, I think what she did was very wrong.
Works for me.
goes way beyond wrong -
Yes, I agree.
That would be very appropriate.
Ends justifies 'means' for Liberals; they should all be forewarned by Stewart receiving a long. . .if not 'healthy' sentencing. . .
She was convicted a year and a half ago and still hasn't been sentenced? What's the holdup? The key to her cell should just be thrown away. She's an anti-American traitor and should never be freed.
Who gives a flip if she dies in prison.
See my post #6.
Had not thought of that 'out' for her. . .but, in the meantime there is a 'wait'. . .and just should life go 'rigiht'; a long one. . .
Then she should've been sentenced faster, so that she'd be more likely to actually complete the sentence!
