Forcillo's police disciplinary hearing will happen after appeal

Const. James Forcillo’s police disciplinary hearing will have to wait until his appeal for his conviction and sentence of six years for the attempted murder of Sammy Yatim is completed.

His lawyer Bryan Badali says Forcillo faces three counts in total under the Police Services Act. Charges of discreditable conduct and unnecessary use of force were laid after the criminal charges in 2013, he said. A further charge of discreditable conduct was laid after Forcillo was convicted of attempted murder by a jury in January.

Forcillo, who has been suspended without pay and is on bail pending appeal, did not attend the brief appearance at Toronto Police Headquarters.

The possible penalties for being found guilty of the police act charges range from a reprimand to termination.  (more...)
