    Background: In Turkey, an eighteen-year-old American girl has been charged with trying to mail hashish to the U.S. The girl, Lauretta Jean Dooley, faces a prison sentence of up to five years under Turkey's drug laws.

    SYNOPSIS: Lauretta Dooley was arrested in August at an Istanbul post office. The package she was mailing contained a hundred grams of hashish, and it landed her in court on Tuesday.

    Her father and elder brother, who had flown over from California, watched the State prosecutor demand a three to five-year jail sentence. Before the trial, Lauretta had been kept in Istanbul's maximum-security Sagmalcilar prison, portrayed in the film, "Midnight Express". She had come to court to plead for a transfer to another prison.

    But her plea was rejected, and she was returned a Sagmalcilar to await a new hearing in January.
