A “not guilty” verdict has been given by a New Brunswick judge for the hit and run case that resulted in the death of Mi’kmaw youth Brady Francis, according to APTN News.

The vehicle's driver—Maurice Johnson—claimed he thought he hit a deer on the night of the accident.

Johnson pleaded not guilty to failing to stop at the scene of an accident that caused a person's death. He was able to leave the courtroom on Tuesday in Moncton.

Family members were not able to enter the courtroom due to coronavirus safety measures.

Francis died at 22-years-old.
