Kathleeh Soliah: Shootout in LA
 
 
When she faced conspiracy charges for allegedly planting bombs under police cars, Kathleen Soliah (left) disappeared for decades, during which time she reinvented herself as Sara Jane Olson (right), a doctor's wife and soccer mom living in the suburbs of Minnesota until she was recognized and apprehended in 1999. Soliah served seven years for the 1975 attempted bombings of two police cars and the slaying of Myrna Opsahl during a bank robbery that same year. Soliah was released on Tuesday March 17, 2009, to her husband just after midnight and is expected to serve a yearlong parole term in Minnesota.
