Cassie bids for less time

The Gold Coast Bulletin - - NEWS -

A COLOM­BIAN judge will con­sider pub­licly undis­closed ev­i­dence to de­ter­mine whether Ade­laide drug smug­gler Cas­san­dra Sains­bury is el­i­gi­ble for a re­duced prison sen­tence.

Sains­bury was jailed for six years af­ter try­ing to smug­gle al­most 6kg of co­caine out of Bo­gota on April 12.

She could be free by 2020 with good be­hav­iour and time al­ready served, but an up­com­ing hear­ing will de­ter­mine if she qual­i­fies for early re­lease.
