Indonesia cuts jail term of Australian drug smuggler

BALI -- A court official says an Australian woman imprisoned in Indonesia has been granted a five-year remission on her 20-year drug smuggling sentence.

Former beauty student Schapelle Leigh Corby was convicted in 2005 of smuggling marijuana onto the resort island of Bali. Her case triggered intense interest in Australia, where many people believe she's innocent.

Prisoners in Indonesia are granted remissions two or three times a year, usually for good behavior. It's unclear — with several two-year cuts already granted — when exactly Corby will be eligible for parole.
