Apparently, it's okay to perjure yourself as long as you're a hockey legend. Guy Lafleur walks away with a slap on the wrist and Lloyd and company seem to be pleased.
In February, his son received a 15-month conditional sentence for more than 20 charges, which included assault, dangerous driving and cannabis production.But hang on, folks... that's not the whole story. One of the charges was actually sexual assault of a minor... and that's not all. CTV seems to have played down a couple of other small details.
Mark Lafleur was first arrested last January. He faces 22 charges that include uttering death threats and sexual assault of a 17-year-old.The best part had to be when CTV's reporter threw in a thread about Lafleuer Senior being treated too harshly.
Mark Lafleur is also accused of kidnapping, forcible confinement, mischief, theft, possession of crack cocaine, ecstasy and marijuana, threatening to kill a Montreal bus driver, dangerous driving causing bodily harm and damaging a bus.
It seems pretty obvious that Lafleur was aiding and abetting a dangerous criminal... who had himself been slapped on the wrist.
At a bail hearing that fall, Lafleur told the court that his son had not violated his curfew, nor consumed drugs or alcohol.That'd be his 16 year-old girlfriend... 6 years his junior.
But a subsequent court hearing revealed that Lafleur had twice driven his son to a hotel so Mark Lafleur could spend time with his teenage girlfriend.
Apparently, in Quebec, much like socialist Ontario... there's no longer any such thing as a bad boy.
