  1. How could a judge justify releasing that cocaine-smuggling piece of trash?

    Does that “angel” get to keep her jetBlue job?

  2. To answer your question; in my opinion, Federal Judge Snyder was correct in handing down the three year (time served) sentence, with a three year supervised probation tail. Marsha Reynolds was instrumental in providing critical testimony in court against a major Jamaican drug supplier, (Gaston Brown), who was convicted in February 2018, of his much higher and more important role in supplying the USA with cocaine. Having been previously qualified as an expert in international drug smuggling, including a case involving numerous kilos of cocaine from Jamaica in a suitcase by an airline passenger; I would agree that 30 kilos (66 pounds), is lot of cocaine, (worth an estimated wholesale value of $960,000.00 dollars, on the East Coast). In contrast however, it was “small”, compared to the amounts trafficked by Gaston Brown. I absolutely do NOT condone the criminal actions of a “knowing mule”, but the goal of supply reduction can only be accomplished by bringing down the entire organization.
