A primary school teacher from Hertfordshire, Southern England has been sentenced to 17 years in prison for dealing cocaine and keeping automatic weapons at her house.
The teacher, 26-year-old, Aqsa Carvalho, was arrested after police found a Czech-made Skorpion machine gun in her dresser drawer, as well as cocaine, a self-loading pistol, a bag of ammo and a revolver. These were all discovered in a police raid to break up a Class A drugs ring in which about £7,000-worth of drugs were seized.
She was found guilty at Kingston Crown Court of three counts of possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life and possession with intent to supply class A drugs. She’s now facing up to 17 years in prison for her part in the criminal gang. Her husband Robert James, 32, was sentenced to 18 years after he pleaded guilty to the same charges.
