Winnipeg police officer charged; accused of deleting own speeding ticket
WINNIPEG — A Winnipeg police officer is accused of deleting records related to his own speeding ticket.
Manitoba’s Independent Investigation Unit says Patrol Sgt. Sean Cassidy was driving a private vehicle when photo radar caught him speeding last October.
He was on duty at the time.
Investigators allege the officer returned to his office and used the police computer to stop the speeding ticket from being issued.
He has been charged with unauthorized use of a computer, fraud and obstructing justice.
Cassidy is to appear in court in March.
