Carlos Ariel Botero Ospina


I'm 46 yars old and was sentenced to 20 years. I am what is called a "blind mule". My van was indeed carrying cocaine but it wasn't known by me. I was stopped by Deputy Barney because of the color of my skin - a fact he told the judge and jury during my trial. I have never dealt in drugs.
