Woman accused of helping fund terrorists pleads guilty

A woman accused of helping fund terrorists through a credit card scam agrees to a plea deal.

Betty Stidham pleaded guilty to criminal attempt to receive stolen property and attempted credit card fraud.

A Clark County judge gave her a 270 day jail sentence, but she won't serve any time if she pays $6,000 in restitution.

Police say Stidham told them she met a man online who promised her money if she sent goods to Africa.

But investigators say she bought them on credit cards with stolen numbers.
