Odeh was charged for not revealing an Israeli military court conviction for several bombings in 1969. She served 10 years before being released in a prisoner swap with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. On Wednesday, Nov. 19, 2014, federal prosecutors in Detroit asked a judge not to release her from jail while she awaits sentencing in March 2015, saying she has a history of deceit.
