Drug Trial Started Today Involving Jori Lehtera

from the Helsinki Times,

THE TRIAL OF A GROUP OF INDIVIDUALS charged with serious drug offences has begun at the Pirkanmaa District Court in Tampere today.

This most well-known of the accused, Jori Lehterä, will also be standing trial, attracting significant media attention to the court proceedings.

The trial consists of 20 defendants in total, who stand accused of a laundry list of crimes ranging from minor drug possession to the trafficking of large quantities of cocaine.

Lehterä, an internationally-known NHL player who is signed with the Philadelphia Flyers, is charged with lesser offences. The prosecution alleges that he purchased eight grams of cocaine from other defendants on several occasions last summer, between 3-22 June. His villa was also subjected to a police raid earlier this year.

Lehterä denies any wrongdoing and is expected to arrive in court next Tuesday, according to Ilta Sanomat. The prosecution is known to be seeking a five-month prison sentence.

The Philadelphia Flyers Need To Rid Themselves Of Jori Lehtera

from John Boruk of NBC Sports Philadelphia,

The Flyers have enough groin strains and knee pains to worry about, that they certainly don’t need a Jori Lehtera headache.

Lehtera was held out of Wednesday’s practice, and consequently not available to the media, after the website MTV.fi reported that the Flyers forward had been questioned by Finnish authorities as a suspect in a large cocaine ring back in his home country (see story). Police had raided Lehtera’s cottage earlier this summer and he, in turn, has denied any wrongdoing. 

The Flyers elected to send out a statement just before 1 p.m. Wednesday, saying, “We have spoken with Jori Lehtera and the league office regarding the reports out of Finland and will reserve any further comment on the matter at this time.”...

So how should the Flyers proceed moving forward?

It’s simple — place Lehtera on waivers, and if he clears, release him.
