Former 1970s radical Sara Jane Olson returned to the Central California prison where she spent six years before her short-lived release last week, a corrections department spokesman said Sunday. The onetime Symbionese Liberation Army member arrived at the Central California Women's Facility in Chowchilla about 9 p.m. Saturday, said Seth Unger of the state Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. Olson's return came after corrections officials said a miscalculation had resulted in her early release.

The judge presiding over Sara Jane Olson's conspiracy trial refused Thursday to recognize the Symbionese Liberation Army as a terrorist organization that posed a threat to public safety and engaged in violent activity. As a result, prosecutors will present extensive evidence at pretrial hearings next week to explain why authorities conducted initial searches of San Francisco apartments used by SLA members without the proper warrants.

The new attorney for Reggie Bush said Wednesday that the former USC tailback hopes to settle a long and contentious civil lawsuit filed against him by would-be sports marketer Lloyd Lake. "From our standpoint this lawsuit is an unnecessary distraction for Mr. Bush," attorney Shawn Chapman Holley said. "If we can quickly reach a compromise with Mr. Lake's attorney, which will eliminate this distraction and allow Mr. Bush to focus on his football career, we would certainly like to try to do so."
