(PLTM) - An article published by the Miami Herald this evening, February 8th, has reported that after a two-week trial, a 12-person Miami federal jury has found former BVI Premier, Andrew Fahie, “guilty of conspiring to import cocaine into the United States along with three related money laundering and racketeering charges.”
According to the Miami Herald, “Jurors deliberated for only four hours before reaching their decision on the [former] BVI premier’s fate.”
Fahie’s sentencing is set for April 29 before U.S. District Judge Kathleen Williams. He faces up to life in prison.
According to the Miami Herald, “Fahie, who showed no emotion as the four guilty verdicts were announced, was ordered by the judge to surrender immediately to prison authorities.”
“The 53-year-old was escorted in handcuffs by a U.S. Marshals deputy to the Federal Detention Center next to the courthouse.”
