Forced Into The Job

My family was straving,My landlord had just given me a warning that if i didn't pay the rent before end month,he would have no option but to kick me out of his house given that i also had 6 months arrears. I had no jobs and so I was just struggling to make ends meet.On the 1st February 2012,a friend of mine introduced me to the job of drug trafficking a job that earned me alot of cash enabling to even buy for my family a well furnished house. Life was good untill the 14th May 2012 when I got arrested and put in cells.The case is in court pending hearing and judgement.
