Toronto police officer acquitted of sexual assault

A Toronto Police officer has been found not guilty of sexual assault after a judge ruled that inconsistencies in the complainant’s testimony “meaningfully challenged” her credibility and reliability, casting doubt on the issue of consent.

Const. Vincenzo Bonazza had pleaded not guilty to one count of sexual assault in relation to the 2008 incident. The complainant reported him in 2015, and a charge was laid one year later following an investigation by Ontario’s police watchdog, the Special Investigations Unit.
