A Terrace police officer who was charged with assault has entered a guilty plea.
The charge came after Constable Bruce Lofroth was involved in a violent arrest of a young person in May 2014.
The arrest was filmed, and a subsequent investigation led to the assault charge against the RCMP constable.
Daniel McLaughin of the BC Criminal Justice Branch says Lofroth pled guilty to a simple assault charge yesterday.
He says it was an early plea, though he couldn’t elaborate if was expected.
Sentencing is set for October 21st in Terrace.
