Toronto cop pleads guilty to police misconduct over assault on Black man a judge called a ‘shocking violation’

Nearly a year after an Ontario judge called his assault on a young Black man a “shocking violation,” a Toronto police constable pleaded guilty to professional misconduct at a disciplinary tribunal Wednesday.

Const. Joseph Dropuljic — an officer with nearly 20 years on the force — was given a conditional discharge for assault last August over the November 2015 incident in North York that left Kimani Wilson, then 23, with minor injuries, distrust in police and lingering psychological issues, according to an agreed statement of facts and the judge’s ruling.

Dropuljic, 52, pleaded guilty to the criminal charge last year and, this week, to professional misconduct under Ontario’s Police Services Act.
