Toronto police Sgt. Christopher Heard found guilty on two counts of sexual assault in retrial

A Toronto police sergeant has been found guilty of two counts of sexual assault for groping two women inside his police car in separate 2015 incidents.

Ontario Court Justice Philip Downes’ decision comes after a years-long legal saga that saw Sgt. Christopher Heard charged, found not guilty by a judge, and then retried this summer, after Crown lawyers successfully appealed his acquittal.

Downes was direct in his assessment of Heard, a 23-year veteran of the Toronto police who adamantly denied the allegations on the stand in June.
