LA Times: 'Jihad Jane' codefendant pleads guilty to terrorism charge

Jamie Paulin-Ramirez of Colorado admits she conspired with Colleen LaRose to support terrorists.

March 10, 2011- Reporting from Philadelphia

A Colorado woman who traveled to Ireland and married a suspected terrorist after conspiring with the Pennsylvania woman who called herself "Jihad Jane" pleaded guilty to a terrorism charge in federal court.

Jamie Paulin-Ramirez, 32, of Leadville, Colo., was indicted in April with Colleen LaRose of Pennsburg, Pa., on a single count of conspiring to provide material support to terrorists planning to "knock down" individuals who were harming Islam.

Among the people LaRose and others targeted was a Swedish cartoonist, Lars Vilks, who offended Muslims by depicting the prophet Muhammad as a dog.

Paulin-Ramirez traveled to Ireland in September 2009 with her minor son and married a suspected terrorist identified in court documents only as co-conspirator No. 2. Her attorney, Jeremy Ibrahim, said he wasn't sure whether his client was still married to the man.

Paulin-Ramirez appeared before U.S. District Judge Petrese B. Tucker in Philadelphia wearing a Muslim head scarf and green prison fatigues and spoke softly when she answered the judge's questions. By pleading guilty, Paulin-Ramirez avoids a trial but faces a sentence of as long as 15 years in prison.
