A character witness of low character

I think the spirit of Perrry Mason must have been in the court room.


Character witness goes to prison

A Chilean woman giving evidence for a friend charged with drug-dealing ended up in prison after admitting it was her all along.

Yamilet Contreras was supposed to be a character witness for her friend, Guillermina C, in court, Las Ultimas Noticias reports.

But Contreras, 43, from Arica, got nervous on the witness stand and ended up contradicting herself repeatedly.

In the end she confessed that the cocaine found with Guillermina C, also 43, actually belonged to her.

Contreras went straight from the witness stand to prison and has been charged with drug dealing and perjury.
