Australian drug smuggler Schapelle Corby may be granted an early release from prison, a spokesperson for her family says.

Corby is serving a 20-year sentence in Bali after being caught carrying cannabis at an Indonesian airport in 2004.

Guy Pilgrim says there is a chance she may be released, or granted a reduction in her sentence, for Christmas, but says she has not been told anything yet.
