Laura Plummer, 33 could face the death sentence if she is found guilty of the charges leveled against her

A woman from Hull has been jailed for three years for smuggling drugs into Egypt.

"Her father said to me "look, the truth is she wouldn't know tramadol from a panadol. It's hard and I can't believe it after waiting for two months", she told the BBC". "It's hard and I can't believe it after waiting for two months". I was anxious about her before, [when she was] in the police station.

Until her sentence is reduced, Plummer's family will keep worrying.

They said she did not try to hide the medicine, which she had been given by a friend, and she thought it was a joke when she was pulled over by officials after arriving for a holiday with her partner.

Her family say that they have lodged an immediate appeal. She's out there by herself.

Meanwhile, Turner is looking into whether or not Plummer would be able to serve part of her prison term in a United Kingdom prison.

"We're just hoping. Even half of that would be better". "Anything less than three years. She doesn't deserve that", she continued.

Tramadol is a strong painkiller used to treat moderate to severe pain.

Tramadol is listed by Egyptian authorities as an illegal drug given its wide use as a heroin substitute.

She said the family were trying to find out more details about what happened in the courtroom on Tuesday.

"She was taking those tablets to help her man who had been in an accident", she said.

There had been concerns that she could face up to 25 years in jail, or even the death penalty.

"She's the kindest person".

The trial was rescheduled with a new interpreter on Tuesday, where a judge handed her three years in prison.

Her father, Nevile Plummer, said his daughter's hair had started falling out due to stress.

He said: "Laura, most of all, will be absolutely devastated". "I think it's a damning indictment about good sense and fair play", Turner said.

Mr Turner accepted Plummer had been naive but was "decent, honest and hard-working". The painkiller is legal in the United Kingdom but a banned narcotic in the north African country. He said the court could also not prove she brought them into the country to sell them.
