Sentencing for senior G20 police who ordered mass arrests

cop 24india news

A Toronto officer convicted of misconduct for the massive breach of civil liberties at the G20 six years ago will argue today why he should keep his job.

A lawyer for Supt. David (Mark) Fenton will argue a reprimand is sufficient.

Complainants arrested during the summit weekend want Fenton fired.

The prosecutor says a year-long demotion would be enough to send a meaningful message.

The 27-year veteran of the force was found guilty last year for ordering indiscriminate arrests.

Retired justice John Hamilton is expected to sentence Fenton in about one month.
