    @Nic01:  I haven’t heard about her in the states. To my knowledge not on the main page for CNN or my local papers.

    I would never expect people from other countries to have heard of Corby, just like we never hear of the Americans/Canadians/Europeans in jail for the same thing.

    I do wonder though, how much Canadians have heard about Simon Gittany and Lisa Harnum.

    I am Canadian and did a working holiday in Australia in 2007 and she was really big news then. Otherwise I doubt I would have heard of her.  I did watch a documentary about Schapelle a few years back and it was aired on a us/ Canada station.
