A voodoo-practicing, drug-smuggling baggage handler will spend life in prison as a federal judge hit him with three life sentences for turning American Airlines into his own personal narcotics shuttle service

Former American Airlines baggage handler Victor Bourne, 37, was found guilty in 2011 of charges he used his access at John F. Kennedy International Airport to smuggle more than 330 pounds of cocaine from 2000 to 2009. He is a black man from Barbados. Bourne’s mother, Maria Alleyne, 52, stayed outside the courtroom, waiting in a vestibule as the sentence was announced. Alleyne had traveled to Africa before the trial began and and hired a witch doctor to put a curse on the prosecutors, according to court documents.
