    Accused drug smuggler Cassie Sainsbury has arrived at a Colombian court and is waiting to learn if a judge will approve her plea deal that may see her serve less than four years in prison.
    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.

    Accused Australian drug mule Cassandra Sainsbury claims she has all the evidence she needs to prove her innocence locked in her mobile phone - if only she could remember her password.
    In an exclusive interview behind the walls of Colombia’s notorious El Buen Pastor female prison, Sainsbury told 60 Minutes’ Liam Bartlett she was confident she would walk free.
    “There is evidence,” she tells Bartlett.
    She goes on to say the emails, photos and messages proving her innocence are all contained within her pattern-password-protected phone – which she is unable to remember.
    “Don't you think that's an incredibly convenient thing to have happened?” Bartlett questioned.
    Sainsbury replied: “I'm sure if you were in prison for five months you would forget it.”

    Cassie Sainsbury’s lawyer plotting ‘better’ plea deal for immediate release

    Oct 22, 2017


    The lawyer for accused Australian drug smuggler Cassie Sainsbury has told 9NEWS he is plotting an a better deal that would see her released from jail in Colombia immediately.

    Orlando Herron yesterday struck a plea deal with the prosecution for a six year jail term for the 22-year-old alleged cocaine trafficker, which is being considered by a judge.

    While some have deemed the penalty as relatively lenient, Mr Herron said there is actually still scope for his client to get an even better deal.

    “The security of Cassandra and the best decision in her interests is only my pre-occupation,” he told 9NEWS during visiting day at Bogota’s El Buen Pastor women’s prison.

    “The deal is not a final decision…The best resolution will be freedom.”

    One of the reasons Ms Sainsbury was given a reduced sentence was because she was described as “poor”, 9NEWS understands.

    The claim has frustrated locals in Colombia, where the minimum wage is $8 per day.

    “It’s not fair. I wouldn’t get special treatment, she should get the same penalty as any Colombian would,” a local woman said.

    The maximum penalty Ms Sainsbury could be handed is 30 years behind bars.

    The judge will announce his decision the plea deal on November 1.

    From the beginning, Ms Sainsbury’s case has been marked by obfuscations and half-truths.

    A Colombian judge has agreed to a plea deal which could see accused drug smuggler Cassie Sainsbury released from jail 2019.
    She was initially facing 30 years jail time but wit good behaviour and time already served, she could be out sooner.

    I didn't expect this after all of her lies. She deserves many more years.

    Do you think she's going to make any money off of selling her story? I hope not.
    She can just go back to hooking.
    Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

    Australian taxpayers have picked up the bill for Cassandra Sainsbury’s eye-watering legal defence, according to Seven News.
    On Thursday, the 22-year-old was sentenced to six years’ behind bars under a plea deal and was ordered to pay a fine of $130,000. She was initially looking at 20-30 years in prison.
    The Adelaide woman will be responsible for covering the fine, however Seven News has revealed taxpayers will foot the bill for five months' worth of legal assistance totalling more than $100,000.
    The Australian Federal Government does offer some financial support to Australians facing serious charges overseas, more than 20 years’ jail time or the death penalty.
    Cassie’s lawyer, Orlando Herran, described the convicted drug smuggler as a “victim.”

    Kahla also said the ordeal may have permanently sullied her sister’s reputation.
    "It’s going to be hard for her to do anything," Khala told Seven News.
    "She's always going to be labelled as 'Cocaine Cassie'."

    She's no victim, IMO...a dumb shit?, yeah, probably.

    I hope she's learned her lesson and stays out of trouble after she gets out. I can't imagine many tax payers are happy about having to cover her defence expenses.

    Well, duh...she earned the label, she'll have to deal with it and live it down.
