Woman Who Attempted To Assassinate President Gerald Ford Released After 32 Years

Washington - The woman who tried to assassinate President Gerarld Ford has been freed from prison after serving 32 years.

Sarah Jane Moore, 77, walked out of Dublin prison near San Francisco a free woman Monday after being paroled. Moore was released for good behaviour, though she had been sentenced to life after trying shoot Ford in 1975 outside of a San Francisco hotel.

Moore was only about 40 feet away from then President Ford when she pulled out a 38 caliber pistol and managed to get one shot off that flew over the President's head thanks to a guick-thinking disabled former Marine standing next to her who managed to see Moore readying her shot before he knocked her arm upwards causing her to miss her mark.

Moore had been an informant for the FBI shortly before her attempted assassination of President Ford, who died about a year ago. At the time, she was involved with the radical Symbionese Liberation Army, the group that had kidnapped Patty Hearst.
