Cassie Sainsbury May Serve Jail Time In Australia

Accused drug smuggler Cassie Sainsbury could serve her jail time in Australia, if our authorities are successful in their negotiations with Colombian officials. 

The 22 year old's facing up to 25 years in jail after being caught with close to 6kilos of cocaine in her luggage at Bogota airport. 

Her lawyer, Orlando Herran, says Australian diplomats are working on a deal that could see her moved from the notorious El Buen Pastor jail to one in Australia. 

Meantime, it's been revealed psychologists have been called in to speak with Cassie over concerns relating to her mental health. 

"She is very very very ... crying, very sad", said her lawyer. 

Cassie's fiance, Scott Broadbridge, is expected to address the media later today after previously remaining pretty quiet.
