A Halifax Regional Police officer who resigned from the force yesterday has pleaded guilty to breaching the public trust.
Const. Jeffrey Buchanan, a 30-year old five-year veteran of the HRP, was sentenced to six months house arrest this morning at Halifax provincial court, followed by six months curfew and two years probation.
Buchanan pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of breaching the public trust. Crown prosecutor Darcy MacPherson dropped a charge of possession of marijuana and offered no evidence on a charge of extortion.
