Sara Jane Olson is now sixty-one, six years older than she was when taken to Central California Women's Facility in Chowchilla for her role (as Kathleen Soliah) with the 1970s terrorist group the Symbionese Liberation Army (SLA). She's more than two decades older than she was when she disappeared, having melted into a suburban life in St. Paul, despite the fact she was a fugitive from the FBI for her involvement in bank robberies and violent crimes. Still, her release from prison on Thursday is a lucky break. As her husband, Dr. Fred Peterson, told me last year, the length of her sentence had long been disputed. Regardless, it's a happy outcome for Fred and their three daughters. Read more about their lives (and what it's like to have a mother who appears on "America's Most Wanted") here.
