The Toronto Maple Leafs' star Mitch Marner received bad legal news from the court about his carjacking case.

Mitch Marner has been all over the Toronto media during the playoffs. In the first round against the Boston Bruins, he faced a lot of backlash for his lack of effort on the ice.

Unfortunately, it's not the end of Marner being in the spotlight. With all the trade rumors going around, there's now another topic surrounding Marner that's being the talk of the town, and it's not related to hockey at all.

Back in 2022, Marner was victim of an armed-carjacking that caused a major stir in Toronto. After over a year of legal procedures, it was just announced that the charges against the robbers, Christon Arman Johnson, 26, and Anas Adan Farah, 23, were quietly dropped last fall.


The allegations had to be dropped as they were not proven, and both men were released from jail. The court believed that there was not a "reasonable prospect of conviction":

Toronto Maple Leafs forward Mitch Marner was robbed in an armed carjacking outside a movie theatre in May 2022.

Police announced a pair of arrests nearly a year later, citing months of «non-stop legwork» investigating the robbery.

Now, court documents show a Crown attorney has withdrawn all charges against both men, telling a court there wasn't "a reasonable prospect of conviction."


It has been revealed by the Toronto Police that they're currently investigating on a third suspect, that could lead to an arrest in the future.

This could help the Leafs trade Marner. This trauma could help him make the decision to lift his no-trade clause to accept a deal with another team.
