An American woman who smuggled a kilogram of cocaine to Australia hiding drugs in her heels was attracted to the country by a man she met online, according to her lawyer.

The woman from Missouri lived alone, had health complications and a breakup before entering into an "intimate relationship" with a man named Hendrik Cornelius, whom he met online.

Despite sending messages constantly, the couple had not yet met, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.

In July of last year he sent a text message to the man, "Can you promise me that you will never leave me? & # 39;

But despite exchanging hundreds of texts with him for five months, I had never seen him face to face.

His Legal Aid attorney, Rebecca Neil, said she was "ready" to provide financial gain for Mr. Cornelius.

Ms. Neil added that Woodrum was a "very religious woman who belonged to a secular order of sisters in the United States."

Woodrum was convicted for importing a commercial amount of a drug controlled by the border on January 31.

His father, Tom Rozanski, said the incident "came out of nowhere" and was "a great surprise for the whole family."

The 51-year-old woman spoke weekly with her father, but never told her about her new romantic interest.

Rozanski said her daughter was severely depressed and had lost her job at the YMCA. She started working on two jobs to make ends meet and underwent a hysterectomy, she said.
