Former JetBlue flight attendant, Jamaican Marsha Gay Reynolds, plead guilty to a single count of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine on Monday.
The felony charge is punishable by a 10-year mandatory minimum prison term.
Sentencing has been scheduled for March 13.
Reynolds, 32, was arrested after she attempted to smuggle nearly 70 pounds of cocaine – worth an estimated US$3 million (J$367 million) – through Los Angeles International Airport on March 18.
She reportedly kicked off her Gucci shoes in order to run from the airport.
