The drugs carried an estimated value of EC $17,500.

During a court appearance on Tuesday, Marshall entered a guilty plea to the charges and was subsequently slapped with a fine of $35,000, with $3,000 to be paid within 24 hours – which he has already paid. The remainder is to be paid in monthly instalments of $1,000.Failure to make the payments will result in Marshall being imprisoned for 18 months.
