Const. Licio Soares

A northern Alberta RCMP officer has been sentenced to 15 months probation for the assault of an Indigenous man in a police detachment in September 2017.

Const. Licio Soares, sentenced in High Prairie provincial court on Wednesday, must also perform 150 hours of community service at an institution or charity that services Indigenous populations in Alberta and 10 hours of instruction related to the difficulties Indigenous people have faced at the hands of the RCMP.

Judge Robert Marceau convicted Soares of assault on May 27, relying heavily on video of the assault at the Slave Lake RCMP detachment.
