A pregnant woman was on Wednesday sentenced to jail-time, days after she was busted with cocaine at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport.
The woman was found with the concealed in a sanitary napkin between her legs and in the handles of a straw bag.
When she appeared in court this morning, 26-year-old Patrima Isaacs, also called Pat, was sentenced to three years in prison and fined $1.8 million after she pleaded guilty to cocaine trafficking.
The Court heard that on July 3, Isaacs was found with 698 grams of cocaine with a street value of $628,200.
The illicit substance was discovered concealed in a sanitary napkin that was in her underwear between her legs and in the handles of a straw bag that she was carrying.
Isaacs was an outgoing passenger heading to New York for a vacation when the bust was made. She begged the Magistrate for leniency while acknowledging that she was engaged in an illegal act.
Isaacs promised that she will not attempt to traffic narcotics again. Her plea did not budge the Magistrate and the sentence was handed down.
