Peter Lloyd sentenced to ten months

Peter Lloyd, the foreign correspondent arrested in Singapore in July on drugs charges, has been sentenced to ten months in Prison. The New Delhi-based correspondent received eight months in prison for possession and consumption of methamphetamine and an additional two months for “possessing drug paraphernalia stained with ketamine”,

Lloyd’s reaction to the sentence could not be immediately determined because he stood with his back to the public gallery. His ex-wife broke down in tears and had to be consoled by a friend. The television reporter has been free on bail but his jail sentence was to begin today. link
