MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - A Montreal woman linked to a group of Algerians thought to be plotting a bombing in the U.S. was ordered freed Tuesday after prosecutors said she had cooperated with investigators and had no knowledge of any terrorist activities. Lucia Garofalo, 35, agreed to plead guilty to two immigration charges - transporting an alien into the U.S. and conspiring to transport aliens. She is likely to be sentenced to six to 12 months in prison. Garofalo had been held since Dec. 19, when she tried to enter Vermont from Canada with an Algerian man, Bouabide Chamchi, 20. They were charged with relatively minor immigration infractions, including trying to enter the U.S. illegally and using a stolen French passport.

Yep, like they said all along, it would be the "terrorists" and the 400,000 hacker virus attacks at Rollover that would cause all the problems. Gotta spazz out your spin, walk your talk, and frenzy-build your case, just in case :-)
Thanks for the interesting update, INever!
