    Predictable! When they’re getting jail time it’s almost immediate. Two months later usually suggests a person of means or closely connected to a person of means. Enough time to verify the amounts and have them lodged and cleared through a local account.

    But 11 lbs of cocaine would have been a huge pay day. Two months on remand is still two months in jail. Guessing a fine is easier and sooner expunged than a stiff jail sentence. Enough said!

    She should have done time along with the fine….the $52k was probably nothing to her since she could have been doing this for a while…
    These type of offenses should carry a mandatory jail term along with a fine that would cover all expenses while in jail
