Terrorist-supporting lawyer gets off easy - 10 years

Lynn Stewart, who passed intelligence on to jihadists in Egypt received a gift from a federal judge - 10 years in prison for her traitorous actions:

Federal Judge John Koeltl sentenced Lynne Stewart in Manhattan after she pleaded with him to reimpose the two-year, four-month sentence he had originally given her in 2006. She said she has been diminished since her November imprisonment.

An appeals court had ordered a new sentencing, saying the judge needed to consider whether she committed perjury. Koeltl says she did and he says she lacked remorse after her first sentencing.

Prosecutors had asked the judge to impose a sentence of at least 15 years.

Stewart was convicted on charges of conspiracy and providing material support to terrorists. She passed messages on to terrorists in Egypt from her client, Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman - the so-called "Blind Sheikh."

Not sure, but isn't there a death sentence for treason? Of course, she wasn't charged with treason to begin with which makes her sentence a gift. The 70 year old "radical" will most likely die in prison which is a better death than that planned by Rahman's followers for others.
