Drug Smuggling Pilot gets 18 years for trafficking


Drug-smuggling local Pilot, Colin Murraine was reportedly sentenced to 18 years imprisonment for drug trafficking.

  1. That sentence is so lenient! What the hell is going on here? The government must make certain he serves every day. Those drugs could have killed many weak people.

  2. Given the weight he attempted to traffic, this was a Very lenient sentence. He will be out in 7.5 yrs.

  3. How will he pay the fine if he’s locked up though. Yes punishment must’ve administered , but look at murderers with long list of records are not even getting that much time.

    • He can cut a deal with the government. Name names. Testify against the “big boys” and bring them down. It’s that simple. From what I hear, he’s about ready to sing like a canary.

    • If it was one of the street people you all would be calling for more time.

      Someone said *he’s young* but he was old enough to know right from wrong.

  4. I think they could of show some Mercy on him 18years is too much he didn’t kill anyone. Trinidad and Tobago 🇹🇹 Just saying he is young deserve to be given a chance to make changes in his life no man is perfect..

    • He can be a perfect little prisoner at 1735, a real example to the bad boys there. He want mercy? Then start naming names. After that, we’ll talk again. Until then he deserve every minute in that hell hole at 1735. Speak man speak!

  5. Judge not, that ye not be judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

    And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but not the beam that is in thine own eye?

    Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.
