HPOA Defense: Oxford Ph.D. Claims He Was "Duped" Into Carrying Four Pounds of Coke By Promise of Meeting Lovely Woman

We have so many of our own misfortunes we might as well consider someone else's.

Four pounds of coke. That's not like a little bag being surreptitiously slipped into an interior sub-pocket of your rolling suitcase. Four pounds takes some lifting. His defense -- that he was tricked by his dick -- was rejected as laudable but irrelevant. (I think that was the ruling, anyway.)

Paul Frampton, the Oxford-educated Louis D. Rubin Jr. Distinguished Professor of Physics and Astronomy, told investigators he was duped into unknowingly carrying the drugs after being lured first to Bolivia with a promise of meeting a famous bikini model.


“As you might imagine I am in a state of shock and disbelief,” Frampton said in a telephone interview Wednesday night. “This is a gross miscarriage of justice. If this had happened in the United States, a jury would have obviously acquitted me.”

Would an American jury have acquitted him? Well, here's the woman he was hoping to meet.

It looks like she's smuggling four pounds of heaven.

Not guilty. So say we all.

Apart from the joke, his defense is transparent nonsense. He wrote messages clearly stating he was aware he was carrying drugs, that he was worried about drug-sniffing dogs, and that he knew the value of the coke (on delivery to Europe) was in the millions.

Against this, it's claimed:

In prison, Frampton was diagnosed with a schizoid personality disorder that results in poor judgment in practical matters and could leave him vulnerable to being easily duped.

He claims he went to Bolivia on some sort of crackpot invitation to meet this woman, and then... I don't know, wound up in an airport with four pounds of coke. I tried to understand it, but it makes no sense. Whether he intended to smuggle the drugs for money or for the hope of sex, he still intended to smuggle the drugs.

He says he doesn't think the bikini model, Denise Milani, had anything to do with his drug smuggling. So, she's off the hook.

He's a professor at UNC-Chapel Hill.

For Further Review and Study: Would you?
