Lima - Two daft Brit cows caught with one-and-a-half kilos of Colombian cocaine have changed their pitch and admitted trafficking following a Peruvian Justice Ministry plea bargain sweetener.
This offers a reduced terms sentence in exchange for grassing up the ID of drug-running kingpins accused of masterminding the Peruvian leg of a global smuggling racket.
Lima prosecution sources have hinted heavily this means the women 'could be out of jail by Christmas 2033'.
The reduced sentence option would shave a good 20 years from the expected penal tariff under the country's draconian anti-drug laws.
Melissa Reid and Michaella McCollum were caught at Lima Airport in August this year and claimed to be innocent victims of a coercion plot that hired them on the European holiday isle of Ibiza.
This morning a spokesperson for their legal defense team said he was hopeful the young women would make a full disclosure to finger the Mr Bigs who'd hired them.
