Jamaica Crime News, St James: A British woman who failed in her attempt to smuggle more than seven pounds of cocaine from Jamaica is to face a plea and case management hearing on July 4.
She is represented by attorneys-at-law Christopher Townsend and Jared Tennant.
Fifty-six-year-old Marjolyn Gayle, a caretaker of Middleton Boulevard, Nottingham, England, was arrested while checking in to board a Tomson Fly flight to London from the Sangster International Airport. The cocaine was reportedly found in packages of Coffee, Grace Festival Mix and Johnny Cake Mix inside her luggage.
She was subsequently charged for possession of, dealing in, and attempting to export cocaine.
During the court sitting on Thursday, attorney Tennant informed the court that the defence have not yet received disclosure. At that point, the prosecutor declared that they were awaiting one statement which is expected to be ready tomorrow.
Wong-Small subsequently set the matter for plea and case management hearing on July 4 and extended Gayle’s bail to that date.
