Colombian beauty queen Angie Sanclemente Valencia, nicknamed the narcomodelo, has been jailed for six years after being found guilty of involvement in a cocaine racket that smugled drugs from South America to Europe.
Police alleged that Angie Sanclemente Valencia helped to recruit young models to help carry drugs. Because of her past as a model, she gained notoriety in the Colombian media. At the age of 21, Angie Sanclemente Valencia won the Queen of Coffee title.
