(SOT SARA JANE OLSON/PLEADED GUILTY :04)

The atmosphere has become inhospitable to someone who has a case such as mine.
Olson admitted that she possessed bombs and and tried to explode them at a Los Angeles police station and Hollywood restaurant in 1975. She says police officers have gained even more esteem since the terrorist attacks on September 11th

(SOT ELEANOR HUNTER/DISTRICT ATTORNEY :05)

Our evidence was overwhelming. If we had gone to trial, I m sure she would have been convicted on all counts.
The case involves a revolutionary group behind the kidnapping of Patty Hearst. Olson was affiliated with the group, and prosecutors charged her with targeting police officers. But the bombs did not explode and Olson disappeared in 1976. She eventually married, had three children, and
volunteered in her upscale Minnesota neighborhood.



(SOT HADASSA GILBERT/SUPPORTER :10)

I m feeling outraged that the American justice, or injustice, system is such that Sara had no choice.
Olson says she s not guilty, but worried about going to prison for life.

(SOT SARA :12)

There was a massive amount of evidence. And the evidence could lead to a conviction, especially in an atmosphere of complete support, understandably, for law enforcement. And my case was against law enforcement.
Prosecutors dismissed some charges, but did not guarantee Olson a specific sentence. She could get life in prison, but more likely will serve five years. Chris Lawrence CBS News.

Just two weeks ago, our poll showed Mark Warner with 45 percent support among likely voters, to Mark Earley's 42 percent.
Tuesday, Warner's lead grew to six points, 48 to 42 percent.
That's largely due to a 19 point lead in northern Virginia, an eight point lead in Roanoke and Southwest, and a lead that has grown to ten points in Hampton Roads.
But Mark Warner's also winning the personality contest, according to our pollsters.
His favorable name recognition has leapt five points in two weeks, to 49 percent.
Mark Earley's has stayed the same at 39 percent.
But while Warner's UNfavorable name recognition grew just one point in the last two weeks -- Earley's jumped SIX points.

The Roanoke Civic Center Commission approved preliminary plans for a 14-point-nine million dollar exhibition center yesterday. The center would feature 32-thousand square feet of space, and would house sports and management offices.

Officials say the money for the plans would come mostly from increased service and admission fees, and surplus revenue at the civic center. If the proposal is approved by Roanoke City Council and the General Assembly, the project could be completed by early 2004.
