The manslaughter trial of the young man accused of causing the death of Langley’s Carson Crimeni is set for this summer.
The trial is set to begin on June 19 in BC Supreme Court in New Westminster and is currently scheduled to run for a full month.
The accused could not be named because he was a minor at the time of his death.
Cremini died on August 14, 2019, in a park near the Walnut Grove Community Center, at the age of 14, from an apparent drug overdose.
After his family learned of his sudden death, video of Carson surfaced on social media showing him at the skate park earlier in the day, so drunk he could barely speak. Other youths can be heard laughing in the video.
Carson’s family believes that someone at the skate park gave the boy large amounts of drugs.
Langley RCMP launched a lengthy investigation, interviewing dozens of witnesses about Carson’s final hours. Received many tips from the public.
In September 2021, charges were laid against the then 20-year-old single. It has been more than two years since Carson died.
Juveniles charged with manslaughter can be sentenced as adults — the law requires judges to give such sentences serious consideration.
