Peel police officer acquitted of assault
A Peel police officer was acquitted of assaulting a man near a bus terminal in the summer of 2010.
Const. Christopher Furlotte was found not guilty of a charge of assault causing bodily harm by Justice Neil Kozloff during a lawful arrest.
Furlotte’s lawyer Peter Brauti, partner at Brauti Thorning Zibarras, tells the Toronto Star that Furlotte felt badly about the man’s injuries but that he believes he did the right thing. Lawrence Gridin, an associate with the firm, was co-counsel on the case. Read Furlotte Judgment
