The mother of Melissa Reid, the 20-year-old British woman held in Peru along with Michaella McCollum, told ITV's This Morning that she was pleading guilty to get back to her family. Speaking ahead of today's reported guilty plea, she said:
She was definitely carrying the drugs in her luggage. That's for sure.
But we still believe she was coerced into it. Obviously now we realise she needs to plead guilty just to get her home.
The two had the option of pleading guilty in exchange for a lower sentence.
