Lavin Trial Due To Resume, Today
The case of suspended Cape Breton Regional Police officer Wade Lavin is due to resume, today.
40 year-old Lavin is charged with impersonating a staff sergeant, forgery, uttering a forged document and conveying a false message.
During his trial in September, Lavin admitted he set up an e-mail account used to contact local media.
The e-mails accuse police management of misusing police-issued vehicles and credit cards.
However, Lavin also testified he didn’t intend those who got the e-mails to believe they were sent by Staff Sergeant Ken O’Neill even though O’Neill’s name was on them.
Lavin is also scheduled to go to trial on May 4th on a charge of uttering a threat.
He’s accused of committing that offence in August.
