Cassie Sainsbury Biography
Who is Cassie Sainsbury ?
‘Cocaine Cassie’ Sainsbury has proudly displayed her weight loss transformation as she sets her sights on returning to Australia to work as a personal trainer.
The 26-year-old is spending her final months on probation in Bogotá, Colombia, after being jailed for smuggling 5.8 kg of cocaine into the country in April 2017.
Sainsbury has lost 29 kg since her arrest and 12 kg since she was released from prison in April of last year.
The former prisoner has shared a series of snapshots of her slender physique on her Instagram account recently looking almost unrecognizable to the woman arrested four years ago.wikipedia
Sainsbury shared a photo of a handwritten manifesto in Spanish on Friday that translated into a message about how friends and family should treat each other.
“Your friends should propose business to you, not drunkenness,” she read one line.
Your family should support you, not limit you. Your partner should help you progress, not spend. ‘
In an interview with Daily Mail Australia in July, Sainsbury detailed her daily life in and outside the Good Shepherd prison and shared her dreams of a simpler existence where she could finally shed her ‘Cocaine Cassie’ identity.
Of her fresh start outside of prison, she said, ‘It’s like, this is where it all starts again.’
Sainsbury spent three years in El Buen Pastor prison, locked in a seven-by-six-foot cell with up to five other inmates. She still has nightmares about it.
“They woke us up between 2.30 and 3.30 in the morning,” she said. Inmates were given breakfast while it was still dark.
Between 5 a.m. and 7 a.m., the guards did a tally. Sometimes they were friendly, other times “inhuman,” she claimed.
You were expected to be showered, beds made, and cleaned. You never really knew when, but you had to be prepared. ‘
The food was “absolutely horrible”, generally including rice, a small portion of vegetables or salad, and meat.
When it was chicken, you knew it was chicken. When it was meat, you didn’t know exactly what it was, ” she said.
Health inspectors occasionally closed the prison kitchen, even doing so for four days on one occasion, she claimed.
But Sainsbury was allowed a job during the time he was in custody, teaching English at a local school in sessions twice a day.
One of his most recent tattoos is that of a pocket watch that shows the moment when he walked through the great blue prison door to freedom.wikipedia
Sainsbury was released on parole at 11:30 p.m. on Friday, April 3, last year and now lives in a studio apartment in Chapinero, in eastern Bogotá.
He found love with a computer technique after canceling his engagement to his incarcerated fiancée, Joli Pico.
The relationship with Ms. Pico fell apart for two reasons, Sainsbury said. Outside of jail it was not the same and Pico “ended up with another person.”
He also does not discuss her with her ex-boyfriend, her personal trainer Scott Broadbridge, who faithfully defended her and brought her a rose in a Colombian prison shortly after her arrest in April 2017.
Sainsbury told the Mail that it was the early days of his new love, whom he declined to name.
“ She does not know to the extent that I am quite well known in Australia.
But here they don’t understand that kind of (fame). In Colombia there is a lot of that (cocaine smuggling). ‘
However, Sainsbury cannot work, or get vaccinated against Covid, because she is a foreigner.
She appears for parole once a month to the judge assigned to her case and admits that she has few local friends.
Sainsbury’s sentence will officially expire next May, but she is hopeful that she will be allowed to return to Australia by the end of 2021.
She plans to live with her mother, Lisa Evans, in Adelaide, and she hopes to experience some culture shock.
Sainsbury rarely speaks English in Bogotá and now she has traces of a Spanish accent.
Upon her return, she hopes to start a personal training business, the career she chose before she was locked up in Bogotá.
“All I really want to do is get over all of this and get my life back,” she said. “I don’t always want to be known as Cocaine Cassie.”
Sainsbury said she stayed true to the version of events she previously told 60 Minutes about being under duress by a Brazilian drug trafficker when she smuggled the 18 packages of cocaine into Bogotá in April 2017.
She claimed at the time that a mysterious man named ‘Angelo Sánchez’ allegedly threatened to kill her mother and her then-boyfriend, Scott Broadbridge, unless she committed the crime.
But she could not prove this in a Colombian court because she had forgotten her phone password.
When asked if she will still be concerned about those criminal elements when she returns to Australia, she admitted: ‘Obviously, it’s always a thought in the back of my head.
I guess we’ll wait and see what happens.
