`LAZY' POLICE OFFICER GETS PROBATION FOR DOCUMENT FORGERY

-

A police officer in Hamilton found guilty of forgery will have to spend 18 months on probation and do 75 hours of community service, an Ontario court judge has ruled. In handing down a conditiona­l discharge, Judge Joseph Nadel found Const. Darren Smith derived no personal benefit from twice forging documents related to a firearms-surrender program. “He did not intend to cause anyone personal harm,” Nadel said. “He was so lazy and so unprofessi­onal that he resorted to criminal acts to complete two simple assignment­s.”
