Corrupt Abbotsford cop Christopher Nicholson walks

Christopher NicholsonA former Abbotsford cop convicted of breach of trust in 2017 arranged for drugs to be trafficked at a target’s home in order to include that information in an application for a search warrant. The case initially resulted in the Office of the Police Complaint Commissioner saying it was investigating 17 other Abbotsford cops for 148 cases of misconduct. The number was later reduced to four pigs and 15 allegations.

Nicholson was charged with six counts of obstructing justice, three counts of breach of trust and one count of unsafe storage of a firearm.

Nicholson pleaded guilty to one breach of trust charge in late 2017, and was sentenced to a 17-month conditional sentence. The remaining charges were stayed.
Nicholson was fired for four violations under the Police Act: discreditable conduct, corrupt practice, public trust offence and improper use or care of firearms.
