WINNIPEG – A member of award-winning hip-hop group Winnipeg’s Most is going to trial on drug charges.
William Pierson, better known as Jon-C, argued in court that the charges should be dropped.
He said police didn’t have a valid search warrant when they allegedly found cocaine and marijuana at his home in 2008.
But a judge ruled the warrant was valid and Pierson is to stand trial on trafficking charges sometime in April.
He also faces charges stemming from a separate drug raid last year.
Winnipeg’s Most has won multiple Aboriginal Music Awards, including best group in 2011.
