…A 19-year-old Arvada woman who was arrested while headed to the Middle East on a terror mission was sentenced on Friday to four years in prison.

“That woman is in need of psychiatric help,” U.S. District Judge Raymond Moore said before sentencing Shannon Conley. “She’s a bit of a mess.”

Moore also ordered Conley to spend three years under supervision and 100 hours of community service.

Conley told the judge she never intended to hurt anyone…

…Prosecutor Gregory Holloway said Conley continues to demonstrate her defiance in jail with guards. He also said the FBI repeatedly warned her that she was breaking the law, but she went ahead and planned to go to Syria to join a jihad instead…

At her sentencing she said she wanted to marry Yousr Mouelhi, whom she met online. She had previously told an FBI agent that she wished to fight a guerilla war in the Middle East or work as a nurse.

    The court really should have ordered appropriate psychiatric treatment for the condition

    • She ain’t right.

    Enjoy your four year vacation, dumb ass.

    My intuition tells me we ain’t seen the last of this one. Probably be a hit with the “free Mumia” crowd.

  • Islam attracts mentally disturbed people, whether Moslems or non-Moslems, because it is itself the product of mentally disturbed people.

    The women who convert to Islam are like those who correspond with jailed murderers and often end up marrying them.

    Stopping them from renouncing citizenship and leaving is figuratively like East Germany’s Berlin wall. Tear down that wall, and let them flee to their hell, never to return.
