Arrest Woman

Alleged drug mule was a sex worker says Nine

Nine’s 60 Minutes has aired explosive allegations that alleged drug mule Cassie Sainsbury worked as a prostitute.

It claims the 22-year-old worked in a western Sydney brothel before her arrest in Colombia.

A woman who claims to be one of Ms Sainsbury’s former colleagues told Nine Cassie was a “fly-in, fly-out” prostitute who commuted regularly between Adelaide and Sydney for work over several months late last year.


It was also claimed Ms Sainsbury’s scammed money from co-workers at the brothel near Penrith to pay for her mother’s funeral, even though she’s alive.

Meanwhile in an interview with Channel Seven Cassie’s fiancé Scott Broadbridge maintained his girlfriend is innocent.

Cassie is currently being held in prison accused of trying to smuggle 5.8 kilograms of cocaine in headphones.

She faces up to 20 years in jail if convicted.
