Phillip Judge and Christine Sorenson appeared in provincial court in Drumheller on Friday, March 26. Both were charged with possession of cocaine for the purposes of trafficking and possession of stolen property.
They both pleaded guilty to the lesser of possession of cocaine.
During the late evening hours of July 20 and the early morning hours of July 21, 2009, Drumheller RCMP, assisted by the Southern Alberta Emergency Response team, executed warrants at a property in Cambria, as well as a rural property North and East of Drumheller. Judge and Sorenson were charged along with five others following the raid.
At the property where Sorenson and Judge were located, police found 12 grams of powdered cocaine.
Defence explained both had made serious changes to their lifestyle since the event.
Judge, who has no previous related record was fined $750. Sorenson has one previous conviction about a month before this incident was fined $1,000. The couple’s second count of possession of stolen property was withdrawn.
