What do you think of the Melina Roberge?
Dressed in a tidy white jacket, and with her hair pulled back, the Canadian woman, 24, appeared modest in comparison to the exploits she portrayed on social media.
The Australian Border Force discovered the suitcase filled with cocaine.
Roberge, dubbed "cocaine babe" by Australian media, was sentenced to a non-parole period of 4 years and 9 months in prison, but factoring time already served, she will be eligible for parole in May 2021.
Roberge's addiction to cultivating Instagram fame started when she met her sugar daddy in 2015.
Roberge and her travel companion, Isabelle Lagace, posted glamorous pictures of their travels while on the cruise ship on social media.
"She was seduced by lifestyle and the opportunity to post glamorous Instagram photos from around the world", Judge Kate Traill said in New South Wales state District Court, according to The Associated Press. "I don't want to be part of that", she said. "I doubt she is now".
"This is a sad indictment on her relative age group in our society". "It is sad they look for to achieve such a vacuous presence, where the number of "likes" they get is their currency". The Sydney Early morning Herald reported that she was drawn into drug smuggling by an older male she called her "sugar daddy". "He charmed her and he spoiled her". "Sometimes there would be intimacy but not always".
Roberge had regretted her actions since her arrest and incarceration in different maximum security Sydney women's prisons, the Post reported.
Her payment: the cost of the globetrotting adventure and €4000 spending money.
Everything pertained to an end in July 2016, when she accepted a complimentary journey on the Sea Princess, a high-end cruise liner that made drop in numerous nations in the southern hemisphere, consisting of Colombia, Peru, New Zealand and Australia, reports CBS.
Roberge and her 2 pals- Isabelle Lagace, 29, and Andrew Tamine, 63- were imprisoned and accuseded of importing an industrial amount of drug, which brings an optimum charge of life in prison.
Roberge, Lagacé and André Tamine, a 65-year-old Montreal man, were all arrested upon arriving in Australia on August 28, 2016.
A fourth member of their crew left the ship in Nova Scotia, Canada.
The 24-year-old, the youngest of three Canadians who imported 209 lbs. cocaine on a luxury cruise, made world headlines when she and Lagace's Instagram posts of their exotic port stops.
The judge said Roberge was also motivated by profit.
