Olsen Files Appeal In Higher Court

Former SLA fugitive Sara Jane Olson, who tried to withdraw the guilty plea that sent her to prison, has filed notice she will appeal it to a higher court.

Olson´s lawyer, Shawn Snider Chapman, filed the notice in the same Superior Court where Olson was sentenced to 20 years to life in prison last month for plotting to blow up a pair of Los Angeles police cars in the 1970s.

A copy of the notice, which was filed Tuesday, was obtained yesterday by The Associated Press. Chapman has not yet commented on the filing.
