A former wide receiver with the Saskatchewan Roughriders has been given an absolute discharge after admitting to marijuana possession.
Duron Carter’s lawyer appeared in Saskatoon provincial court and replaced his client’s not guilty plea from earlier this year with one of guilty.
Carter was arrested at the Saskatoon airport in February after customs officers opened a cigar package in his luggage and found cannabis inside.
A judge accepted a joint submission from the Crown and defence asking that Carter receive the absolute discharge.
That means the conviction will show up on Carter’s record for one year before it is wiped out.
He was also fined $100.
