An Alberta provincial court judge said the only thing RCMP Const. Brendon Plamondon is guilty of is “not using enough force” when he arrested a 15-year-old girl.
Judge Ferne LeReverend acquitted Plamondon of assault.
The incident that led to the criminal charge occurred on a Wednesday night around 9:30 p.m. in April 2014. RCMP received a report that a group of young people was setting fires on a residential street in Fort Saskatchewan.
Plamondon was just a few minutes away and responded to the call.
He drove onto the street and saw three girls standing around the glowing embers of a fire.
