Lynne Stewart Talks to Amy Goodman Before Being Imprisoned

Last week Attorney Lynne Stewart began serving a 28 month sentence in federal prison after a U.S. appeals court upheld Stewart's 2005 conviction of assisting terrorism for distributing press releases on behalf of her jailed client, Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman, also known as the "Blind Sheikh," who is serving a life sentence on terror-related charges.

Before entering prison November 18 Stewart spoke about the case and her impending prison term with Amy Goodman on Democracy Now.

Jurist Marjorie Cohn of Thomas Jefferson Law School in Philadelphia explains why the "clear message of the 125-page majority appellate panel opinion is that attorneys who zealously represent their clients in the post-9/11 era beware."
