Jail for Laura Silsby?

USA Today reports that on the first day of trial, the Haitian prosecutor recommends six months in jail:

Prosecutor Sonel Jean-Francois told a Port-au-Prince court today that Silsby knew she had broken Haitian law. She and nine other Baptist missionaries were charged initially with kidnapping after being stopped on their way to the Dominican Republic, where she planned to open an orphanage. The nine have been freed, and kidnapping charges against all 10 were dropped last month.
