American activist Lori Berenson is finally heading home to New York, two decades after being found guilty of aiding leftist rebels in Peru.The 46-year-old has been living quietly in Lima with her 6-year-old son since her 2010 parole because she was barred from leaving the country until her 20-year sentence lapsed. Berenson told The Associated Press that occurred on Sunday.After U.S. pressure and a legal defense aided by former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark, Berenson was retried in a civilian court in 2001 .Berenson apologized publicly in 2010 as a condition for obtaining parole but was re-incarcerated for three months that year on a technicality.
