Christiane Moringa Fortis was caught with cocaine worth €64,000 at Dublin Airport.
A Brazilian woman caught carrying cocaine pellets in her body and underwear at Dublin Airport has had her jail term cut on appeal.
Christiane Moringa Fortis (28), with an address in Sao Paulo, Brazil, had pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to the importation of cocaine worth €64,000 at Dublin Airport on May 14th, 2014.
She was sentenced to four years imprisonment by Mr Justice Patrick McCartan in December 2014.
Fortis successfully appealed her sentence on Thursday on grounds that the Circuit Court judge erred in his approach to sentencing and accordingly, the Court of Appeal imposed a new sentence on her of four years imprisonment with the final 18 months suspended.
