Waco jail term

WACO - The Branch Davidian cult member Kathryn Schroeder was sentenced to three years in jail and three years supervised release for her role in the stand-off with federal agents in Waco last year. She had reached a plea bargain by pleading guilty to a lesser charge of resisting arrest in exchange for testimony at the trial of 11 other Branch Davidians. Reuter
