Unclear if sentencing will take place today.



The two remaining accused Norwegian girls in the attempted Cochabamba cocaine-smuggling affair could face lengthy jail sentences.

Whilst the prosecution has demanded a sentence of 15 years for the pregnant 19-year-old, the 23 year-old defendant risks 25 years in jail.

The court is now adjourned until 20:45 this evening, and it’s still not known if its verdict will fall today, according to NRK.

Stina Brendemo Hagen (19), Madeleine Rodriguez (23), and Christina Øygarden (19) were arrested at Cochabamba airport in May 2008, after attempting to take out 22 kilos of cocaine with a street value estimated to be in the region of 20 million kroner.
