The 33-year-old shopkeeper, Laura Plummer, was arrested on October 9 after police found close to 300 pills of Tramadol packed in her luggage at Egypt's Hurghada International Airport, according to the BBC.
He added: "The evidence is pretty clear that she didn't know the drug was banned and she was taking it out there to help her boyfriend, who has come up with the evidence that he does suffer from a severe back problem".
Plummer has been detained in Egypt since her arrest in October, though her legal team is now debating whether to appeal the decision.
Laura Plummer, left, was sentenced to prison time for smuggling drugs into Egypt that she claimed were for her boyfriend Omar Caboo, at right.
Speaking from Egypt after the verdict, Mum Roberta said: "This is not fair".
Her family have insisted she has been treated fairly by the Egyptian justice system, which will today decide whether to postpone her hearing or accept a bail offer.
Despite Miss Plummer pleading her innocence, prosecutors persuaded a court in Hurghada to send her for trial - and she will appear before a judge at the main criminal court in Safaga.
Her lawyer Mohamed Othman reportedly said a plane ticket showing she paid twice as much for her flights as the drugs were worth is proof that she was not planning to sell them.
