Marsha Gay Reynolds, 2008 Miss Jamaica contestant, has really put the screws on the family. The prosecutor argues that this was not her first drug smuggling, just the first time she has been caught. While that may be true, where has she spent the money earned from any previous drug shipping? Her parents have to foot the bail bond of $500k by giving up homes owned by Reynolds' mother and father who is a Pentecostal minister.
She has lived a privileged life compared to many Jamaicans who struggle to find food daily, yet she wanted total glamour. The man who arranged the prospect, may also be an intimate partner as the police also found Trojan Magnum condoms in her luggage, tried to flee to Jamaica but never made it. His name has not been released to date. She claims she did not know the drugs were in the luggage, a claim supported by her father, but that will be difficult to defend since she made a phone at the moment she was selected for screening at LAX, then suddenly kicked of her shoes and ran. Amazingly, she returned to same airport later the same night to get on the last flight to New York
Marsha faces 10 years in prison if convicted. Do you think she's guilty?
