Ottawa police officer pleads guilty to charges

-

An Ottawa police officer pleaded guilty to two counts of neglect of duty yesterday. In one case, Const. Jacky Lord failed to show up at court at 9: 30 a. m. Oct. 20, 2005, after being subpoenaed to testify. He called at noon to say he was sick. Charges in the case, which involved failure to provide a breath sample, were withdrawn as a result. In another incident on Oct. 28, Const. Lord signed in to a court appearance using an earlier time than he had actually arrived. He will be sentenced today. Two other charges were withdrawn.
