SLA Radical Sara Jane Olson to Be Released from Prison

Posted: Updated:
Sara Jane Olson, the 1970s radical, is scheduled to be released from prison Tuesday.

But Minnesota's governor is urging Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to keep her in California.

The former member of the Symbionese Liberation Army was convicted for her role in the attempted pipe bombings of LAPD officers in the 1970s.

Police caught her in Minneapolis after more than 20 years on the run.

Olson hopes to serve her parole in Minnesota, near her family. But police officers there say she is a safety risk.

Olson's attorney says efforts to make her stay in California are vindictive.
