Boudin served 22 years in prison (after being a fugitive for more than a decade before that) for her role as the getaway driver in a botched Brinks truck robbery in 1981 in which a Brinks guard and two police officers were gunned down in cold blood.

She was paroled a decade ago — though as Eric Fettmann wrote in these pages in 2003, a book about Boudin published soon after the parole revealed how she had lied consistently about the extent of her role in the Weather Underground terror group: “Boudin was personally involved in at least a dozen bombings across the country — including at the Pentagon, the US Capitol and NYPD headquarters — before the Brinks job. She also rented cars both for bank robberies and for the prison escape of cop-killer Joanne Chesimard.”
