Ex-SLA Member Kilgore Is Sentenced

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Former Symbionese Liberation Army member James Kilgore, who dodged authorities on bomb and murder charges for decades, was sentenced Monday to 54 months in prison on federal explosives and passport fraud convictions.

He pleaded guilty last year.

Kilgore, 56, who was extradited from South Africa in 2002 after living there as a professor, was a member of the 1970s radical group that kidnapped newspaper heiress Patricia Hearst.
