Drug verdict to come in August
Jul 28 2012
B.C. Supreme Court Justice Carol Ross will deliver judgment next month on whether a Victoria man and his former girlfriend are guilty of a number of drug offences.
Alfred Kong, 32, is charged with conspiracy to traffic cocaine, trafficking cocaine, and possessing cocaine and ecstasy for the purpose of trafficking.
His co-accused and former girlfriend Bich Ngo is charged with two counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking.
The offences are alleged to have taken place in July and September 2008.
This week, Kong took the stand and essentially admitted that he was guilty of the offences - with the exception of the conspiracy charge.
Kong testified that Ngo had almost nothing to do with his drug dealing. She didn't know the extent or scale of his dealing and she did not profit from it, he said.
The Crown's case alleges that Kong supplied a local drug dealer with one kilogram of cocaine in July 2008. The Crown also alleges that, in September 2008, Kong and Ngo intended to traffic cocaine and more than 17,000 ecstasy pills.
Final submissions concluded Thursday. Ross is to deliver her judgment on Aug. 16, at 9 a.m.
