R. vs. J.K. – Surrey Provincial Court

Charge: Possession for the purpose of trafficking (fentanyl, crystal meth and MDMA) in a prison.
Issue: Whether the drugs were possessed by our client for the purpose of trafficking or for personal use.
Result: After a 3 day trial, Mr. Johnson was able to persuade the Crown that our client was guilty of only the lesser offence of simple possession. Rather than being sentenced to a two year mandatory minimum jail sentence, the trial judge released our client from custody.
