Martin to return to Canada regardless of verdict: Lawyer

GUADALAJARA, Mexico - Jailed Canadian Brenda Martin will be back in Canada before the end of the month even if she is found guilty by a Mexican court, her lawyer says.

"I have been told that the Mexican and Canadian authorities have an agreement to extradite Brenda immediately," Guillermo Cruz Rico said Saturday in an interview in Guadalajara.

Martin has refused to sign documents that would allow her extradition to Canada if she is found guilty because they state the process could take up to nine months and she would have to serve time in a Canadian prison.
