Gawd, this reading of the charges is going on forever. If it's nailbiting for us, just imagine what it must be like for her! She looks to be keeping it together at the moment, but it must be really harrowing.

There are three charges - one bringing the death penalty. the prosecution have asked for life, but the judge has the power to impose the death penalty. The second charge brings a maximum of 15 years, and the third charge, possession, which seems to me to be the most likely one where she might be found guilty, carries a maximum of 10 years. If she is convicted, it will be requested for her to be moved to a gaol in Australia, but this process could take months at least.
