A stunned Lynne Stewart was re-sentenced to 10 years in prison Thursday, in part because she crowed that she could handle the initial 28-month sentence ordered by Southern District of New York Judge John Koeltl in 2006 “standing on my head.”

Koeltl, instructed by an appeals court to reconsider sentencing enhancements for terrorism, perjury and abuse of her position of trust as a lawyer, did just that as he ordered a longer term for the 70-year-old former defense lawyer for providing material support to a terrorist conspiracy.
