A young woman will plead guilty to drug smuggling charges in Peru, even though she maintains she was forced into carrying the narcotics against her will, her father has said to Daybreak.
William Reid, whose 20-year-old daughter Melissa is in the notorious Virgen de Fatima prison in Peru's capital Lima, said her guilty plea was part of "plea bargaining negotiations".
Sitting next to Melissa's mother Debra, he explained: "You can spend a lengthy pre-trial period in detention otherwise. Not all of the people who know most about this case are going to be questioned."
