OPP Cst. Troy Bender pleads guilty to discreditable conduct
A northwestern Ontario OPP officer charged under the Police Services Act after a fatal collision two years ago has pleaded guilty.
Constable Troy Bender was charged in connection with an incident in which a woman died after the police cruiser she was in collided with a tractor-trailer near Kenora.
Bender was initially charged with dangerous driving causing death, but subsequently pleaded guilty to careless driving and was fined about $1,100.
Last month he pleaded guilty to discreditable conduct under the Police Services Act.
An OPP spokesperson says the adjudicator in the case has not yet decided on the penalty.
