She is not the only one, other women managed to get out of the death penalty / life sentence and were even legally released after serving only a few years.Rock wrote: ... Thai jails are full of farangs ...
I think there was case many years ago where western daughter of a high ranking insurance exec somehow got out of a multi decade prison sentence for drugs.

For a Western women for sure it is much easier to get out of jail than for any man.
Nola Blake is a good example, sentenced to death in Thailand for drug offence, released after 11 years,
Sandra Gregory is another example, sentenced to death and out of the Thai jail after only 4 years, transferred to a UK jail, finally out of jail after serving 3 years in UK.
I also remember a similar case in Laos about a woman from UK.
Clearly a double standard, not only in Western countries, but in Asia as well.
