MARGERY LANDRY, formerly of the US Foreign Service, sentenced to twenty years for shooting friend's husband.
Landry, 48, who had pleaded guilty in September to first-degree assault, burglary and other crimes, said that the shooting was a "mistake" and that she had planned only to plant child pornography in the home to help her friend in the divorce case.
