However I believe this woman to be innocent or ignorant at best and does'nt deserve 7 years in jail. Bring her back!!

However, all that we know is that Ms. Martin says she is innocent. We do not know the evidence against her. We do not know all of the details. Having spent two years in prison while awaiting a verdict is another story in itself. Lets just hope she will get stronger once she is back in Canada.

But now when Brenda Martin gets sent to jail in a another country, everyone is all upset and hand wringing.
Just because she is always blubbering on camera, while Black remained stoic, does not change either of their being found guilty in the country where the crime was committed, by that country's legal system.

I for one love mexico and their people, the legal system is a bit questionable at best.
That said; I am very much looking forward to my next visit and will continue to be suspect of many of the "in-country deals".
Shes in a foreign contry for pete's sake, it pays to be wary
