Trial for teen accused of taking jailed beau drugs

A high school student accused of bringing drugs to her jailed boyfriend at Prey Sar prison attended her hearing at the Phnom Penh Municipal Court yesterday.

The court charged the 17-year-old with “managing drugs for the use of another person”, after she hid crystal methamphetamine in a cake box that she delivered to her boyfriend last November, presiding judge Chhae Vireak told the court.

The young woman expressed remorse for her actions yesterday, asking for leniency and to be allowed to return to school.

“I decided to bring drugs [for him] because he often called me and begged me to buy it for him... I loved him, and I pitied him,” she told the court.

Her boyfriend is serving a 12-year jail term for multiple robberies.

The verdict will be handed down on April 9.
