Philadelphia - A federal judge has agreed to a reduced sentence for a US woman involved in a deadly terror plot, because of her extensive co-operation with investigators.
Colleen LaRose called herself "Jihad Jane" online and agreed to kill a Swedish artist who had offended Muslims.
Judge Petrese Tucker accepted a government request on Monday to reduce LaRose's sentence. LaRose had faced a potential life term.
Prosecutors are still asking for decades in prison, saying she remains dangerous.
Both sides agree that LaRose was isolated and endured harsh abuse throughout her life. But they disagree on how great a threat she was.
The 50-year-old LaRose smiled at her lawyers as she was brought into court in a head scarf and prison jumpsuit.
