The Saskatchewan Roughriders’ Duron Carter has received an absolute discharge after pleading guilty to a charge of marijuana possession.
That charge was laid Nov. 25 after Carter was arrested at Winnipeg International Airport. The plea was entered and the case was dispensed with Monday.
“I just felt it was the best situation for me and how I’m doing and trying to progress through Canada and in my life,’’ Carter told the Leader-Post’s Murray McCormick after Thursday’s 40-17 loss to the Ottawa Redblacks.
Carter is still facing another marijuana-possession charge, which dates back to Feb. 1 when he was arrested at Saskatoon International Airport. The next court date relating to that charge is June 27.
When asked about might happen in Saskatoon, Carter replied “I don’t know … you will read it in the newspaper.”
