It’s always unpleasant to see an all-time great’s name dragged through the mud – especially when it is a family member doing the dragging – but at least there’s some good news for Montreal Canadiens legend Guy Lafleur.
Quebec’s highest court has acquitted former NHL hockey star Guy Lafleur, earlier convicted of giving contradictory testimony at his son’s sexual assault and forcible confinement trial.
There’s no doubt that it is an ugly situation, but Lafleur can at least take solace in the fact that he can move on from those charges. He was previously given a one-year sentence for perjury but his appeal was successful today.
