Cornwall cop pleads guilty to drunk driving rap

CORNWALL -- A Cornwall police officer is prohibited from driving for a year after pleading guilty Monday to impaired driving charges.

In addition to the driving ban, Cornwall Community Police Service Det.-Const. Emma Wilson-King, 45, of South Stormont was fined $1,000 on the charge of exceeding a blood alcohol content of 80 milligrams per 100 millilitres.

Wilson-King was given 90 days to pay the fine.

The officer was found behind the wheel of a parked car at the side of County Road 15 (Avonmore Road) on Feb. 1 by Ontario Provincial Police officers responding to a call. A man in the vehicle with Wilson-King got out of the car and gestured to the officers.

Wilson-King wa arrested and charged with impaired operation of a motor vehicle and over .80. She took personal leave from her job after the arrest, but returned to work within a few days to be assigned to administrative duties.

Because Wilson-King has been convicted, Cornwall Community Police Service Staff Sgt. Garry Derochie of the Professional Standards Bureau is investigating the matter.

Derochie said the conviction could lead to further charges under the Ontario Police Services Act, but the investigation will likely take a few weeks.

This is an example of how the ottawa police will claim that criminal offences by police are extremely rare.

Wrong. It's extremely rare that police are ever prosecuted.

For every cop caught drunk driving, a host of others know the officer pulling them over and nudge nudge wink wink, it's all sorted out without charges.


I recall watching one local cop reguarlly driving drunk, and when pulled over by another police force, he would be driven home to go out and do it again and again. He retired with a hero's retirement party and god knows how many of those officers drove home impaired.


Impaired driving by police is however not a big a problem as fabrication of evidence, perjury, obstruction of justice and lying to gain convictions and or justify charges or NOT laying chargings.


In Ottawa, Ottawa Police Det. Peter Van Der Zander fabricates evidence to NOT charge the most violent of female offenders. Very obviously, he has a history of this kind of behaviour and very obviously, there are other victims of this officer around. If you have been a victim of Det. Peter Van Der Zander, email or call (613) 736-7788
