Former SLA Member has Sentence Restored
Former Symbionese Liberation Army member Sara Jane Olson had a one year reduction of her sentence restored on Thursday after judges ruled her appeal had not followed proper procedure.
Olson had been living in St. Paul for 23 years before she was arrested by the FBI in 1999. Her arrest came as a surprise to her husband and three daughters, who claimed to have no knowledge that their wife and mother was a fugitive.
The Symbionese Liberation Army, an American terrorist group also known as the SLA were best known for their capture of heiress Patty Hearst.
