DENPASAR, Indonesia— An Indonesian court on Tuesday sentenced a 56-year-old British woman to death for drug smuggling on the resort island of Bali.

“We found Lindsay Sandiford convincingly and legally guilty for importing narcotics… and sentenced the defendant to death,” judge Amser Simanjuntak told Denpasar district court.

Prosecutors had earlier recommended a 15-year jail sentence.
