US 'Jihad Jane' faces lengthy jail sentence for plotting to kill Swedish cartoonist

ANI  |  London 

A Pennsylvania woman who called herself 'Jihad Jane' online could face decades behind bars for plotting to kill a Swedish cartoonist.

Colleen LaRose plotted to kill Lars Vilk, whose work had offended Muslims.

According to Sky News, prosecutors said in court papers that the 50-year-old's sentencing should serve as an example to other.

LaRose and two others, Jamie Paulin-Ramirez and teenager Mohammad Hassan Khalid, convicted in the plot are due to be sentenced next week.

LaRose pleaded guilty to the charges in 2011 and faces a maximum sentence of life in prison.

The other two could get up to 15 years in prison for conspiring to provide material aid to terrorists, the report added.
