She deserves it.
Wow, NY finally got it right.
Good, now how about a good stiff sentence for treason.
Please tell me she'll get the chair.
Now will this left ACLU Terrorist Lesbian Lawyer get disbarred and do some jail time?
I think they already have.
Jeez, there are only so many headlines. (The increasingly lefty) L&O has ripped 'em all by now. < |:)~
20 years MAX??? Why not DEATH? 20 means 10 and with good behavior she gets 5-7 years. Pathetic sentence for what amounts to TREASON!!
Whatever happened to that woman from Takoma Park with similar charges lodged against her?
Awesome. Attorney-client privilege does not extend to treason.
Why are you shocked?
OH. Okay, I see...you thought "Civil Rights" Attorneys actuslly did honorable work.
I'm going out right now and celebrate.
This ugly woman is a disgrace and should be put in a dark hole for the rest of her life.
The jury has been deliberating for a month..I was worried.
A stopped clock, etc.
That is very, very close to being abuse-button worthy...
Stop posting vile pics like this.
Relief!! WOO HOO!
Send her to GITMO
They will but that fat wag will be changed to a 25 year old white guy and the terrorists will be a Bible school.
Jerry Garcia sans beard.
According to the news, they deliberated less than 2 weeks.
Ron Kuby next?
You could throw that in a suit and tie, no-one would be the wiser.
Excellent. Lawyers are not above the law; it's about time all lawyers learned and applied that lesson.
As an attorney myself, I don't have a high opinion of my profession. Read Matthew 23; if you substitute the word "Pharisee" with "Lawyer" very little, if any, is lost in the way of meaning.
Yesterday's Pharisees are today's lawyers.
Holy cow. So to speak.
I know! This is great news.
Then I misheard a TV report yesterday...I apologize if I misled anyone.
I dunno, she sure looks like she's going to enjoy her prison stay.
Sentencing guidelines should require her to do some time, and with a Felony Conviction, disbarrment is automatic.
NEW YORK (AP) -- A veteran civil rights lawyer was convicted Thursday of crossing the line by smuggling messages of violence from one of her jailed clients -- a radical Egyptian sheik -- to his terrorist disciples on the outside. The jury has been deliberating off-and-on over the past month in the case of Lynne Stewart, 65, a firebrand, left-wing activist known for representing radicals and revolutionaries in her 30 years on the New York legal scene. The jury deliberated 13 days in all. Stewart faces up to 20 years in prison on charges of giving material support to terrorists and defrauding the U.S. government. The trial focused attention on the line between zealous advocacy and criminal behavior by a lawyer. Some defense lawyers saw the case as a government warning to attorneys to tread carefully in terrorism cases. The jury also convicted a U.S. postal worker, Ahmed Abdel Sattar, of plotting to "kill and kidnap persons in a foreign country" by publishing an edict urging the killing of Jews and their supporters. A third defendant, Arabic interpreter Mohamed Yousry, was convicted of providing material support to terrorists. Sattar could face life in prison and Yousry up to 20 years.

(HMTL challenged so you'll have to use your imagination to picture Monty Burns)
Are court system worked. Let's hope she gets the 20 years .
A prison sentence? She deserves a one way ticket to the ultimate judge for a more lasting sentence.
And he said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers.
Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.
The Pharisees were "doctors of the law", which I suppose was the contemporary equivalent of a J.D.
And yeah, I'm another one that these jokers are making look bad . . . :-(
Lets hope so.
A Traitor being convicted is good news.
A Traitor receiving the death penalty would be better.
