In January, two women were caught at JFK International Airport wearing makeshift duct tape diapers that contained 6.5 kilos of cocaine worth $85,000. One of them36-year-old Michelle Blassingalehas been sentenced to two years in prison. 

Blassingdale and Priscilla Pena, both of the Bronx, were on their way back from the Dominican Republic when U.S. Customs officials stopped them at the airport. During a pat-down, officials discovered a hard object inside of Blassingdale's pants. That's when she admitted that a man in the Dominican Republic had given her $9,000 to smuggle the drugs back in to the U.S. 

Pena's judgement day is still coming.
