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.
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.

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?
Sound like he does not expect to come back to the US.
Lovesick? Greedy? Stupid? No way the guys teaching my kids. Good catch and thanks.
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 . . .
Oh, your post made me laugh out loud!
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.
God gave man one brain and one penis, but only enough blood to run one at a time.
Is this Peter’s brother?
Somehow, I don’t believe she walked there in those shoes.....
Now THAT’S a honey trap!
