Behave! I wonder if she will wear her outfit in prison. Holy God that is pathetic sentence. You could get more for drink driving Lol what a joke. The IRA will snap her up. She's bound to have learned something she can share with the Irish Terrorists! Female sentencing as usual. Imagine if she an ISIS member was a man; there'd be little or no mitigation. The Yazidi young women her 'husband' kidnapped as sex slaves and she enjoyed as domestic slaves in the 'Islamic State' can at least be satisfied she didn't get away scot-free.

The enemy within . Ridiculous sentencing Shame on the ROI justice system. The people of ROI who thought for the freedoms of the European continent & the free world in the Second World War got longer in prison than Lisa well. A 15 month sentence for a terrorist...
