A former RCMP staff sergeant was given a suspended sentence with 12 months probation after pleading guilty to assault in provincial court on Monday in Fort McMurray.
Former staff sergeant Jason Keays was charged with one count of sexual assault in June 2018. On Monday, he pleaded guilty to common assault.
Keays touched the victim without her consent on several occasions, according to the agreed statement of facts. All of the incidents happened while the two were not on duty.
Keays and the complainant didn't work together directly, but ultimately Keays was the complainant's supervisor.
