The case of a suspended OPP officer charged with obstruction of justice and breach of trust will return to Sarnia court this April.
Const. Craig Johnston’s case returned to court this week, the latest in a series of routine appearances. The charges stem from a series of alleged incidents that took place in the summer of 2017, including — according to court documents — destruction of evidence, inappropriate database requests, and exploiting a position of authority.
Johnson, 31, a ten year veteran of the force, was charged last November after a nearly year-long investigation. His case will return to Sarnia court for another appearance April 1.
Ontario is the only province in Canada that bars police chiefs from suspending officers without pay.https://www.theobserver.ca/news/local-n ... d-to-april
