Former Toyota PR Chief Julie Hamp To Be Released, According To Reports

TOKYO — Former Toyota CCO Julie Hamp will be released because of lack of evidence nearly one week after she resigned her position amid drug charges. 

Kyodo News is reporting that prosecutors plan to release Hamp without indicting after her detention, which began on June 18, ends. The news outlet reports the decision comes, in part, because her actions were not considered malicious and she has resigned her post at Toyota.  

The trouble for Hamp began when she was suspected of sending 57 oxycodone pills, which are highly-regulated in Japan, via mail from the US to Tokyo. She stepped downfrom her post at Toyota last week.
