New Waterford Woman Charged After SIRT Investigation
A New Waterford woman is facing several charges following an investigation by the province’s Serious Incident Response Team. 49 year-old Kathryn McNeil filed complaints to both the SIRT and Cape Breton Regional Police last summer regarding allegations of domestic violence and criminal harassment involving a Regional Police officer. The SIRT says it found no grounds to charge the officer in question, though the response team is accusing McNeil of fabricating evidence and public mischief with intent to mislead a SIRT investigator, as well as attempted obstruction of justice and breaching a court order. McNeil is scheduled to appear in Sydney Provincial Court on February 23rd.
