A Colorado woman charged in the "Jihad Jane" terrorism case has had a change of heart. A notice filed in federal court Friday said that Jamie Paulin-Ramirez, 32, of Leadville, about 100 miles west of Denver, now intends to plead guilty Tuesday to one count of conspiring to provide material aid to terrorists. She had been expected to stand trial on May 2. Jeremy Ibrahim, Paulin-Ramirez's attorney, confirmed that she would plead guilty, but he declined further comment. Paulin-Ramirez surrendered to authorities here in April after returning from Ireland and has since been in federal custody.

A HIGH-SCHOOL honors student from Maryland helped the American terror suspect dubbed "Jihad Jane" plot to kill a Swedish artist and used the Internet to raise money and recruits for overseas terrorists, federal prosecutors charged in an indictment yesterday. Mohammad Hassan Khalid, a legal immigrant from Pakistan, had been the rare juvenile in federal custody until he turned 18 last month. The FBI arrested him July 6 at his family's home in Ellicott City, near Baltimore. According to the indictment, Khalid tried to recruit men to wage jihad, or a violent holy war, in Europe and South Asia, and women who had passports to travel through Europe.

A woman indicted last year as an accomplice in the "Jihad Jane" case pleaded guilty to conspiracy to aid terrorists yesterday in federal district court. U.S. District Judge Petrese Tucker did not set sentencing for Jamie Paulin-Ramirez, 32, who appeared in court wearing a black hijab, a head covering traditionally worn by Muslim women. The government's plea memo said Paulin-Ramirez and co-defendant Colleen LaRose, a/k/a "Jihad Jane" and "Fatima LaRose," began communicating via e-mail in August 2009 after LaRose had moved to Europe and invited Paulin-Ramirez to join her and attend a jihadist training camp.

The woman who called herself "Jihad Jane" and who federal prosecutors say is a would-be terrorist has had a change of heart. Her attorney confirmed yesterday that the woman, Colleen R. LaRose, plans to enter a guilty plea in federal district court here on Tuesday. Defense attorney Mark Wilson said LaRose, 47, formerly of Pennsburg, Montgomery County, will plead guilty to all four charges against her. The charges include conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists, lying to the FBI, conspiracy to kill in a foreign country (for allegedly plotting to kill a Swedish cartoonist who depicted the prophet Mohammed as a dog)

Her hair hidden under a black head scarf, Colorado resident Jamie Paulin-Ramirez pleaded guilty Tuesday to providing "material support" to terrorists by marrying an alleged jihadist in Ireland in 2009. The count against Paulin-Ramirez, who traveled to Europe from the small town of Leadville, Colo., is connected to the case against Colleen LaRose, the Pennsburg woman known as Jihad Jane, who pleaded guilty to multiple charges last month. Both women were indicted after an investigation of a group of fundamentalist Muslims in Europe who allegedly wanted to kill the Swedish artist Lars Vilk because of his drawing of a dog with the head of Muhammad.

Jihad Jane, the online moniker of Colleen R. LaRose, walked into a federal courtroom yesterday, with bleached blonde hair, orange sneakers and a hunter-green prison jumpsuit. She admitted that she had conspired to support terrorists, planned to kill in a foreign nation, lied to the FBI and tried to steal her ex-boyfriend's identity. LaRose's admission came in a 20-minute hearing before U.S. District Judge Petrese Tucker. A sentencing date was continued pending a pre-sentence investigation report.

The Algerian-born terror suspect accused of recruiting Colleen "Jihad Jane" LaRose of Montgomery County in a 2009 plot to assassinate a Swedish artist was arrested Thursday in Spain, seven months after he dodged a U.S. bid to extradite him from Ireland. Spanish authorities said Friday that they detained Ali Charaf Damache, 50, at a hotel along Barcelona's busy Avinguda Meridiana after receiving a phone tip that he was living in the city. The Justice Department will again seek his extradition to face terrorism-related charges in Philadelphia, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney's Office said.

The Algerian-born terror suspect accused of recruiting Colleen "Jihad Jane" LaRose of Montgomery County into a 2009 plot to assassinate a Swedish artist won a two-year legal battle Thursday in Ireland to avoid extradition to the United States. A federal grand jury in Philadelphia charged Ali Charaf Damache in 2011 with one count each of terrorism conspiracy and attempted identity theft. The indictment is part of a case that has already sent LaRose and two others to prison. In the Dublin High Court decision Thursday, Justice Aileen Donnelly cited concerns over prison conditions in the United States and found that Irish state prosecutors had ignored their responsibility to attempt to try Damache first on terror charges in Ireland, where he holds citizenship.

PHILADELPHIA A Colorado woman who took her 6-year-old son to train for holy war with a purported al-Qaeda operative in Ireland was sentenced Wednesday to eight years in prison. Jamie Paulin Ramirez, 35, told a federal judge in Philadelphia that she knew a week after marrying Ali Charaf Damache that she had made a horrible mistake. She only hopes that her child can forget the hate-filled teachings to which she exposed him, she said. But in urging a decadelong sentence, prosecutors showed an alarming video of Ramirez's boy - draped in a traditional Middle Eastern headdress and long robes - cheerfully vowing, at his mother's prompting, to shoot nonbelievers.

A troubled Montgomery County woman whose outspoken advocacy of violent jihad led to her involvement in a plot to kill a Swedish artist was sentenced Monday to 10 years in federal prison - far less than the decades behind bars sought by Justice Department officials. Colleen LaRose, better known by her online moniker "Jihad Jane," told a federal judge that for years, she was obsessed with Islamic extremism, but that her religious views had mellowed since her arrest more than four years ago. "That's all I would think about, was jihad and jihad and jihad.

A federal judge has held for review a defense request to transfer 18-year-old Mohammad Hassan Khalid - the youngest person ever charged in a U.S. terrorism plot - to a secure juvenile treatment center near Harrisburg. U.S. District Judge Petrese B. Tucker said she would rule on the motion filed by Khalid's lawyers after she consults with federal probation and prison officials. Tucker heard about 30 minutes of oral argument this morning by defense attorneys Jeffrey M. Lindy and Alan J. Tauber and Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer A. Williams.
