UNC professor convicted of cocaine smuggling in trip to meet bikini model

RALEIGH, N.C. -- A University of North Carolina professor is complaining his conviction on drug smuggling charges in Argentina is an injustice.

Sixty-eight-year-old UNC-Chapel Hill physics professor Paul Frampton said he unknowingly carried 4 pounds of cocaine hidden in a suitcase from Bolivia while on a quest to meet a famous bikini model who is in her 30s.

British news reports say Frampton told investigators he was in Argentina to meet a model he'd met online and someone gave him a bag they claimed belonged to the woman, a Czech model called Denise Milani.

...SNIP...

Frampton also is fighting a decision by university officials to stop paying his $107,000 salary for failing to fulfill teaching and other duties. Frampton says he's now worried the university will fire him.

Liberalism is definitely a mental disease. This guy gets caught smuggling drugs and he's PO'ed because the college doesn't want to continue to pay him while he's in jail in Argentina....unreal. This is what is teaching our kids and grandchildren. No wonder the US is so screwed up. He's just too stupid to be in the position of a professor.

He’s old enough to qualify for full social security - that ought to give him enough money while he’s in prison.

Guess it’s good that he hooked up with drug smugglers instead of muzzie terrorists.

If I were ever on a sinking ship with Denise Milani, I’d cling to her in the water. There’s no way she would go under....

You would figure that by 68 years old he’d have learned to think with his brain.

Now that the close to 70 British-born particular physics professor Frampton has through his stinking behavior made himself an international laughing stock and drug-running criminal who’s in danger of losing his university salary, he’s asking for double his salary!

HA,HA,Ha. Would you take this bag to my grandchildren in the US? I’ll have my friend meet you in Miami. Gee, I thought people wised up over this old handoff trick back in the ‘70’s. Dumbass.

Looks like there might be a second victim lining up for a flight:

“It looks like he made a bad decision to accept a bag that he shouldn’t have accepted, but it’s a terrible thing to have to spend several years in prison for that,” Mark Williams, a UNC professor of math, told WRAL-TV.

So Prof. Williams thinks the problem is taking a bag, not that a 68 year old man flies to Argentina to meet a 30 year old “model”?

Lesson: Don’t send your kids to Chapel Hill. The profs are too stupid.

UNC prof not real bright.

When overseas...never take a package from anyone you do not know (unless they are family). And, always pack small so you can carry on the plane...do not trust check in and baggage handlers outside US

From your article it looks like he was more a dope than a dupe and guilty to boot:
According to the News & Observer, during the three-day trial, a prosecutor showed the court calculations – made in Frampton's handwriting – of the drugs' value. The prosecution also presented texts and e-mails Frampton thought he was sending to Milani the day before his arrest, which apparently said he was "worried about the sniffer dogs" and that he was "looking after [the] special little suitcase".

If they are family and you don't know them how do you know they are family?

He expects to serve the time under house arrest at a friend's apartment in Buenos Aires.

Sound like he does not expect to come back to the US.

Don’t they still ask at the airport whether you have any bags given to you that you didn’t pack yourself?

If so he also LIED to the TSA/Check-In agents . . .

Yes, a 68 year old fool

Funny though ,I believe his story. He got sucked into being a drug mule because his brain drained down into his pecker.That aint blood that causes an erection, it’s brain matter.

He doesn’t deserve prison for being tricked, but he probably does deserve it for poisoning his students with liberalism.

I would think if that were the case there’d be enough of an Internet correspondence trail to exonerate him.

It’s a long boring story, but in line at the Manila airport once, I watched a kung fu type of shaved head monk in robes talk two Asian girls into carrying his new clock radio in a box to their next destination, since he had too many bags to check. I listened to make sure none of them were on my plane, thank goodness.

Well-—I could almost agreee with you, but he isn’t in America, he is in Argentina, and they have an American by the balls.

I doubt the Argentines have a real interest in Justice.
They are more interested in sending a message.
