Singer Corneliu will appear this afternoon to face two counts of administering a drug to two people.

The former participant of the second edition of Star Académie, released in 2004, has already had trouble with the law in the past. The singer had been arrested for theft and conspiracy following an incident at a Canadian Tire in Laval in the winter of 2018. Accompanied by his ex-roommate, Corneliu was suspected of having stolen kitchen items whose value was less than $200.   

An arrest warrant had even had to be issued since the former academician had failed to appear at his first four hearings.
