(BVI News) Former BVI Ports Authority Managing Director Oleanvine Pickering-Maynard was given a nine-year and four-month prison sentence for her role in a drug trafficking plot that involved convicted former Premier Andrew Fahie.

Besides the time in jail, Maynard, who is 62 years old, will also have to undergo five more years of supervised release.

The sentencing occurred in a Miami courtroom, with United States District Judge Kathleen Williams overseeing the proceedings.

The former ports boss told a Miami court she helped the convicted former Premier orchestrate a Hollywood-style drug and money laundering conspiracy to smuggle thousands of kilos of cocaine through the territory’s waters and to hide the proceeds coming from their efforts.

Judge Williams selected a sentence that was lower than the recommended range of 11 years and three months to 14 years.

Maynard’s son, Kadeem Maynard, received a 57-month sentence in November 2023, but Fahie has not yet been sentenced and is scheduled for a court date on August 5, 2024.
