Former York police officer convicted of second sexual assault

A former York police officer has pleaded guilty and been sentenced on sexual assault and breach of trust charges, a second conviction for the Markham man in the past two years.

Former constable Young Min von Seefried was handed a 25-month prison sentence on April 5 for his behaviour on Aug. 12, 2014, when he stopped the vehicle of a married couple he’d observed leaving a karaoke bar at Steeles Ave. and Putnam Gate in Markham.

After pulling over the vehicle, von Seefried smelled alcohol and asked for the male driver’s and female passenger’s ID, telling her she looked “very lovely,” the court heard.
