arrested in July 2015 for possessing 610 grams of cocaine, discovered concealed in a laptop by customs agents at an airport in Guangzhou, as reported in the Yangcheng Evening News. The beauty queen and Colombian soccer player has been sentenced to 15 years in prison. She narrowly escaped a life sentence.
Sarrazola told the court she agreed to transport drugs on behalf of a Colombian trafficker by the name of Sergio, for which she would be paid USD $2,500s. She needed cash to enter the Miss World 2015 beauty contest. She was able to convince the court (by showing text messages she received on her phone) that this Sergio threatened to harm her family members if she did not agree to act as a drug mule. The court agreed that the money she would gain was small compared to the amount of drugs she was smuggling.
Friends of Sarrazola in Medellín say they don’t believe the celebrity would knowingly transport drugs.
She could be released in 5 to 7 years on good behavior.
