Brent Hillier Sr., who is expected to plead guilty to obstructing justice in May, is no longer an RCMP officer.
A spokesperson for the RCMP confirmed the former sergeant ceased to be a Mountie on Jan. 16. He had been suspended with pay since being charged a year earlier.
It's not clear if Hillier Sr. quit, retired or was fired. The force won't comment on his departure, saying the information is protected by their human resources policy.
