KINGSTON, Jamaica — A woman who said she attempted to smuggle cocaine out of the island to finance her mother’s breast cancer treatment, has pleaded guilty to the crime.
She’s to be sentenced in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday.
Sherica Graham, 23, of an Oakland Drive address in Kingston, on Friday pleaded guilty to charges of attempting to export cocaine, possession of cocaine, dealing in cocaine and conspiracy to export cocaine.
