She may look like your nice old Granny ... but this woman is a convicted felon who tried to assassinate the President of the United States.

Sara Jane Moore

In September of 1975, then 45-year-old suburban mom of four, Sara Jane Moore, shot at President Gerald Ford in front of the St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco. Thinking an act of violence would "trigger a revolution," the now 80-year-old woman fired a gun, barely missing President Ford's head. She spent 30 years in prison (and escaped once), nearly 6 1/2 of which were spent in solitary confinement. Now free on parole, she tells "Today's" Matt Lauer she was "mistaken."
