    The 22-year-old South Australian has agreed to part of the prosecution's allegation that she travelled to Colombia and attempted to return home with almost six kilograms of cocaine.
    Ms Sainsbury was pushed out of a van by a pack of prison guards and escorted up the steps for her most important hearing to date.

    Drug mule Cassie Sainsbury's sentencing has been pushed back after a last minute court admission infuriated prosecutors and risks her six-year plea deal being torn up.
    The 22-year-old smiled in the Colombian court as the judge announced he need more time to re-evaluate the plea bargain, after claims she was coerced into trafficking drugs.
    "I have found a very complex development with this plea bargain," Judge Leon said.
    Earlier, lawyers for Sainsbury agreed with prosecutors to a sentence of six years, along with 450 months of wages, after the South Australian woman accepted responsibility for drug trafficking.
    It was in the process of being approved by the court.



    But then Sainsbury told the judge she only carried the drugs because a person, who she could not name, threatened to kill her family and fiancé if she did not.
    The prosecution said Sainsbury never previously raised the issue of being coerced to commit the crime when they previously debated a plea bargain.

    O.k., so she admits she did it...but *surprise*...they made her do it. Right . That story is as old as the hills. If she pi$$es off that judge any more there won't even BE a plea deal. Now would be the time to get her sh!t together.

    Accused Australian drug mule Cassie Sainsbury will stand trial in Colombia on drug trafficking charges after a judge rejected a plea deal that would have seen her face a six-year term in a Columbian jail.
    Sainsbury, 22, sobbed with her head down as she was escorted from court in Bogota this morning after hearing Judge Sergio Leon’s reject the deal for a reduced jail term that was struck with prosecutors in July in exchange for accepting responsibility for drug trafficking.
    With the plea deal thrown out, she will now await a full trial at a later date in Colombia. Under Colombian law, she is facing a maximum sentence of between 20 and 30 years if found guilty.

    She had her chance at a possible reduced sentence and blew it, now the judge is playing hard ball right back.

    Cassie Sainsbury details plans to clear her name

    Sept 24, 2017


    Accused drug smuggler Cassandra Sainsbury has opened up about her life in a Colombian women's prison and plans to clear her name - just days before she's due in court over her part in a bungled million-dollar drug operation.

    Sainsbury is due to appear before a judge on Tuesday to learn the full details of the prosecution case against her.

    But in an exclusive prison interview granted to 60 Minutes, Sainsbury has told reporter Liam Bartlett she believed she had all the evidence she needed to clear her name.

    The 22-year-old former fitness instructor was caught with 5.8kg of cocaine in her luggage as she attempted to board a flight to London at Bogota's El Dorado International Airport on April 12.

    For the past five months, she has been incarcerated in the city's notorious El Buen Pastor women's prison.

    She was originally housed on Patio 4 - also known as the Narco Cellblock – but 60 Minutes can reveal Sainsbury has since been transferred into the high security wing.

    snipped

    In May, 60 Minutes revealed allegations that Sainsbury had also been working as a prostitute at a brothel at Penrith, in Sydney's west.

    A former sex worker told 60 Minutes that staff at the brothel were stunned to learn of Sainsbury's arrest in Colombia – and were particularly shocked to see her mother had flown there to support her, because the 22-year-old had told them she was dead, and had accepted money from them to travel home for her funeral.

    After months of negotiation with Colombian authorities, Bartlett this month sat down with Sainsbury inside the prison to ask the questions her fellow Australians wanted answered.

    For all the shock revelations, tune in to 60 Minutes for the explosive interview tonight at 8.30pm on Channel 9.
