Former English Cricketer Chris Lewis Jailed for 13 Years on Cocaine Smuggling

Former cricketer Chris Lewis, who played 32 Test and 53 ODI matches for England, has been sentenced to 13 years in prison after being accused of smuggling Cocaine. He along with another person named Chad Kirnon was carrying cocaine in his luggage and both of them were separately arrested at Gatwick on 8 December 2008 after they were found to be carrying a number of tins of pure cocaine while traveling, though both of them denied the charges during the trial period.


It is really something shocking to see a former cricketer being convicted of smuggling cocaine and I really feel very sad for it. Cricketers are given the star’s status in England and young generation follows the cricketers like Chris Lewis. Anyway, I just hope that Chris Lewis gets the right judgment.
