A federal appeals court today ordered a convicted terror-coddling civil rights lawyer to begin serving her prison sentence.
The 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan upheld Lynne Stewart's conviction upon announcing its ruling.
Stewart, 69, was convicted in February 2005 of conspiracy and providing and concealing material support of terrorism for her actions in smuggling messages from "blind sheik" Omar Abdel-Rahman to his followers in the Islamic terror group Gama'a al-Islamiyya.
Stewart was sentenced to just two years behind bars.
But the appeals court also ordered her resentenced -- saying the judge must consider whether she committed perjury at trial.
At the time of her sentencing in October 2006, Stewart faced a maximum 30-year prison term for conspiracy to provide material support to terrorist organizations, making false statements and defrauding the government.
