Toronto-area constable pleads innocent to 14 fees related to corruption probe

A Toronto-area police officer accused in a drugs and corruption probe has pleaded not guilty to more than a dozen charges.

Richard Senior, a constable with York Regional Police, entered his plea today on the first day of this trial, which is being conducted by videoconference.

He is being tried on 14 charges, including breach of trust, possession of a firearm for the purpose of committing an offence, and trafficking in both cocaine and testosterone.

Senior, a veteran of the force, was arrested in 2018 after investigators alleged he was involved in a number of illegal enterprises.

He was initially charged with 30 offences.

The trial is expected to hear from undercover officers whose identities are protected under a publication ban.
