The mother, who was on trial for cocaine in her teenage son’s suitcase handles, has been fine $2.7M and sentenced to three years imprisonment.
The discovery of the drugs was made on August 26, 2016 when the teen, who was awaiting his flight from Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) to New York, was apprehended by ranks of the Police Narcotics Branch.
Demerara Waves Online News understands that Fowler vomited in the courtroom before her sentence was handed down to her.
It is unclear why the accused changed her plea to guilty, but she was ordered to pay a fine of GYD$2, 710, 800.
Meanwhile, the case against Griffith in the same matter remains pending.
