TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — An Iranian woman who spent five years in a prison in the U.S. for her role in a scheme to smuggle military night-vision goggles to Iran has returned home.

A Monday report by Iran’s state TV says Shahrazad Mir Gholikhan was met by family members, including her twin daughters Melina and Melika, at Tehran airport. Saying she feels reborn, Mir Gholikhan plans to file a lawsuit against the U.S. in international courts in order to prove her claim of innocence.

An American court sentenced Gholikhan, now 36, to five years in prison after she went to the U.S. voluntarily in late 2007 to plead guilty in a deal she expected would allow her to quickly return home.
