The Terrace RCMP officer who pleaded guilty to assault earlier this year has been sentenced with no jail time.
Constable Bruce Lofroth was given a suspended sentence, with 12-months of probation and 100 hours of community service, along with a number of other conditions.
The 100 hours of community service is to be served for the benefit of First Nations youth.
He is also required to take an anger management course.
The presiding judge said the sentence was necessary so First Nations youth know they won’t be abused by those in authority.
Cst. Lofroth was seen in a 2014 video violently arresting a First Nations youth in Terrace.
The suspended sentence means Lofroth won’t see any jail time as long as he abides by his probation conditions, but will have a criminal record.
