Tragedy of mother (18) jailed for

smuggling heroin

Kara Pereira who was jailed for 5½ years by the Royal Court

A TEENAGE mother broke down in court yesterday when she was jailed for 5½ years for importing class A drugs into the Island.

Kara Pereira (18) smuggled heroin with a street value of £80,000 and cocaine worth just over £1,000 into the Island in return for £1,500 after falling on hard times.

But her desperate bid to pay off her debts failed when she was arrested minutes after stepping off a plane at the Airport.

And she sobbed uncontrollably as the Royal Court dismissed her advocate’s pleas for a community order and sentenced her to youth detention.
