Obama signals uncertain time for fugitives in Cuba
Almost 25 years ago, he smuggled a pistol onto a commercial flight, diverted the plane to Havana and spent 13 1/2 years in a Cuban prison for air piracy.

Now the Mount Vernon, N.Y., native has written to President-elect Barack Obama seeking a pardon, hoping U.S.-Cuba relations will improve and he'll be able to come home.

Others among the more than 70 American fugitives in Cuba fear the opposite - that a thaw in the nearly 50-year-old freeze between neighbors will put them within the reach of U.S. law.
