TV star jailed for cocaine use

The former soap opera star and Idol presenter was found guilty on Friday of three separate drug offences by Södertörn District Court, Expressen reports.

“My lawyer and I are very surprised since the prosecutor didn’t call for a prison sentence,” she told the newspaper.

Bråding, 28, admitted to using cocaine after she was arrested in late April and traces of the drug were discovered in a urine sample.

The court convicted her of the possession and purchase of cocaine. She was also found to have passed on quantities of the drug to her boyfriend and a selection of their friends.

Bråding’s boyfriend was also tried and sentenced to a year and eight months in jail.
