ROCHESTER, Minn. – A plea deal over five drug crimes results in no additional jail time for a Rochester man.
Rochester police said James Trayon Jucaree Walker, 23, was caught on June 12, 2020, with 417 grams of marijuana. Walker was arrested again on June 22, 2020, after Rochester police said they found 16.75 grams of heroin, 213 grams of marijuana, 25 packages of THC, and $4,000 in cash.
He was charged with first-degree drug sales, second-degree drug possession, fifth-degree drug sales, and two counts of fifth-degree controlled substance crime. Walker pleaded guilty to second-degree drug possession and one count of fifth-degree controlled substance crime.
Walker was sentenced Monday to five years of supervised probation and must either pay a $1,000 fine or do 100 hours of community work service. He received a stay of imposition for the second-degree drug charge and a stay of adjudication on the fifth-degree count. That means if Walker successfully completes his probation, he will end up with only a single misdemeanor conviction on his record.
