A prison warden is recommending early release for Lynne Stewart, a former New York civil rights lawyer, who is doing time in connection to a terrorism case.
He suggests that Stewart should be granted a compassionate release because she has advanced, Stage IV cancer.
Stewart, 73, was convicted in 2005 on charges she helped her client Omar Abdel Rahman, the so-called Blind Sheikh, communicate with his followers.
She was sentenced to 28 months behind bars in 2006 and then resentenced in 2010 to 10 years.
A Bureau of Prisons spokeswoman did not comment on Stewart's case for privacy reasons.
