Rusty Young has lived in Colombia for 7-8years and told Jodie & Soda Adelaide’s Cassie Sainsbury will be well looked after alongside other internationals on drugs charges in El Buen Pastor (The Good Shepherd) Women’s prison in Bogota.

“There’s another 90 other internationals being kept there,” he said. “She’ll be protected by the Colombians, they are very mindful of looking after internationals.”

Rusty’s new book is called Colombiano, by the worldwide best-selling author known for his previous book Marching Powder which looked at inside Bolivia’s notorious San Pedro prison.
