The flight attendant accused of trying to smuggle cocaine through Los Angeles International Airport isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
Marsha Reynolds will remain in jail in New York until April 7, ABC News reported.
On Thursday, the 31-year-old JetBlue flight attendant was given a second chance in a Brooklyn court, when the judge overseeing her case granted her a $500,000 bail, ABC News said. Judge Viktor V. Pohorelsky said he did so mainly because Reynolds turned herself in.
Reynolds is accused of smuggling almost 70 pounds of cocaine through the airport, dropping a suitcase filled with the drugs at a security checkpoint and then fleeing on March 18, according to ABC News. She was charged with possession with the intent to distribute cocaine.
The same day the New York judge set Reynolds’ bail, another judge in Los Angeles, from where she fled, overturned the decision, ABC said.
If convicted, Reynolds could go to prison for 10 years, according to ABC.
