A woman who said her former husband terrorized her into helping him hijack a jetliner to Cuba nearly 20 years ago thanked the judge who sentenced her to six months in jail.

Linda Joyce Grinage, 39, will have to serve only 32 more days because she was credited with time served at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York. After her release she will be on probation for five years.Grinage had been living in the Albany area for about 10 years under the name Haziine Eytina, with her second husband, Mylo Eytina, and five children. She was arrested in July after the FBI received an anonymous tip.

"Over the last 20 years, I have suffered greatly," she told the judge.
