TRINIDADIAN Herman Charles Jack was yesterday sentenced to four years imprisonment, by Magistrate Hazel Octave Hamilton, for drug trafficking.
The prisoner was jointly charged with a Guyanese but he pleaded guilty to having, on March 31  at Cheddi Jagan International Airport, Timehri, East Bank Demerara, trafficked 550 grammes of cocaine.

His co-defendant, Earl Melville (no address given) pleaded not guilty to aiding, abetting, counsellng and procuring Jack to commit the offence.
Police Inspector Joel Ricknauth, prosecuting, said Jack was an outgoing passenger on a flight that was bound for London, England.
But Jack complained of feeling unwell and confessed that he had swallowed cocaine pellets, 49 of which he excreted at Georgetown Public Hospital, the Prosecutor said.
Together with the jail sentence, Jack was fined $495,000 while Melville was remanded to prison until April 19 and his case was transferred to Providence Court, also on East Bank Demerara.
