Jury finds Newfoundland and Labrador officer Doug Snelgrove guilty of sexual assault

A jury convicted a Newfoundland and Labrador police officer on Saturday of sexually assaulting a young woman while he was on duty, bringing a long-awaited end to a gruelling case that was tried in court three times.

Royal Newfoundland Constabulary Const. Carl Douglas Snelgrove was found guilty of sexually assaulting the 21-year-old woman in her living room in 2014 after driving her home from a St. John’s nightclub in his police car.

This was his third trial for the charge, following a successful appeal of an acquittal in 2017 and a subsequent mistrial last year.
