Lori Berenson was convicted of aiding the MRTA. I think the charges
were terrorism and treason (a bit of a controversy over this, since
she's not a Peruvian citizen), maybe conspiracy, whatever.
Anyway, the US Embassy has intervened on her side, as have
various politicos. I vaguely remember something about her
sentence being commuted to some number of months, or maybe
she was already released.
Then again, as I type this I also remember something about her
being interviewed in prison and settling down for the long haul
-- no communtation or parole.
So actually, I guess I have no idea what her situation is exactly.
She had no connection to the PCP.
