It pays to run after all. Runaway beauty queen and former Jetblue flight attendant Marsha Gay Reynolds was sentenced yesterday to time already served on a cocaine-smuggling charge, and so is expected to be released from custody.


Marsha Gay Reynolds ran from security in March 2016 after ditching 60 pounds of cocaine at Los Angeles International Airport. 


The 33-year-old has been sentenced to time served after pleading guilty last year to conspiracy to possess and distribute cocaine.


She, however, will spend three years on supervised release, said reports in the international press.


The cocaine she was carrying valued US$3 million, said the international press, which also reported Reynolds as telling the court that she earned thousands of dollars helping to smuggle narcotics and money through airport security checkpoint.




The offence of drug trafficking carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in federal prison, and a maximum possible sentence of life imprisonment.




Reynolds, who also is a United States citizen, escaped that level of punishment.


Online reports stated that, in sentencing, District Judge Christina Snyder noted that Reynolds ‘obviously provided substantial assistance to the government’ in prosecuting the alleged drug supplier Gaston Brown.




Brown, a Jamaica, is charged with one count of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine, and one count of possession with intent to distribute cocaine.




He allegedly supplied the drug to Reynolds, who admitted that she tried to smuggle the narcotics through airport security using her ‘known crew member’ credentials, which allowed her to bypass typical screening because she was a flight attendant.




However, on the day she was caught with cocaine, Reynolds was selected for random screening at the airport.
