When law enforcement arrested the two men, they also searched a Spruce Meadows residence where Jackson was found with Maria Slawson.

Slawson was arrested in July and charged with drug possession.

On Monday, Nov. 7, Slawson pleaded guilty to one count of 5th-degree controlled substance possession in exchange for a $590 fine and two years of supervised probation.

Slawson will complete 50 hours of community service in lieu of $500 of the fine, according to court records.

A remaining charge of 3rd-degree drug possession was dismissed.

Kamara’s jury trial has not been scheduled, and Jackson is scheduled to stand trial in March of 2023.
