Redcar woman in Bali court facing two week wait

A woman from Teesside currently on trial in Indonesia for drug trafficking will have to wait for nearly two weeks for a judgment.

Lindsay Sandiford, originally from Redcar, was arrested in May after police in Bali said that they found more than ten pounds of cocaine in the lining of her suitcase.

Earlier, she told the court she became involved only because her children were in danger.

Prosecutors presented their case in court today.

They want a 15-year jail term - a lesser sentence than the maximum penalty for drug trafficking which is death.

The judgement is expected on January 22nd.
