Jamie Paulin-Ramirez pleaded not guilty at her arraignment Wednesday in federal court in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  She faces federal charges that she supported terrorists overseas.  She was arrested in Ireland in March in a plot to commit murder.

Paulin-Ramirez is accused of being involved in the plot to kill cartoonist Lars Vilks a Swedish artist vilified by Muslims because of his drawings of the Prophet Muhammad.

The other woman Colleen R. LaRose, dubbed Jihad Jane, is also charged with conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists in the U.S. indictment.

Jeremy Ibrahim, Paulin-Ramirez’s lawyer informed the court the accused is pregnant.  She returned to the U.S. to face the charges with her 6 year old son who is in custody of Pennsylvania Child Services.
