A Spokane woman who hid a sedated monkey under her blouse on a flight from Thailand to Los Angeles - pretending she was pregnant, although the monkey moved about - has been convicted of smuggling charges.
Jemsy Dawson, 27, successfully passed through U.S. Customs in Los Angeles with the rhesus monkey hidden in her shirt after the November 2007 trip.
Her mother, Fran O'Brien, 53, of Southport, Wash., accompanied her on the flight from Bangkok, confessed she knew about the monkey business, and was also convicted.
A jury found the two women guilty Monday on separate charges of conspiracy and smuggling goods into the United States. Sentencing is set for March 4.
The jury also found the airlines guilty of carrying dopes into the country, with one obviously having a monkey on her back.
The court them took a rhesus.
