5-year prison term upheld for ‘vigilante’ Hamilton cop over gun planting plan

A rogue Hamilton police officer who plotted to have a gun planted at a suspect’s home had his perjury and obstruction of justice convictions upheld Monday along with his five-year prison sentence.

In dismissing an appeal from former det.-const. Robert Hansen, Ontario’s top court found his crimes deserved “substantial” punishment.

“Police officers occupy a special position of trust in the community,” the Appeal Court said.
