‘Jihad Jane’ Cohort Set To Plead Guilty
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Jamie Paulin-Ramirez, who allegedly conspired with a suburban Philadelphia woman known as “Jihad Jane” to support terrorism, is now expected to plead guilty next week, a month after Colleen LaRose pleaded guilty.
The federal court docket now lists a change of plea hearing for Tuesday. Ramirez is charged with a single count “conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists”.
She is now scheduled to plead guilty. It is an open plea with the sentence to be determined later by a judge.
According to authorities, Ramirez conspired with Colleen LaRose and others, traveling to Europe with her then six-year-old son to meet up with LaRose and train with jihadists.
She was taken into custody last year after voluntarily returning from Ireland to face the charge against her.
Ramirez and LaRose are in custody and there has been no comment from authorities or their attorneys as to whether either is cooperating.
