Gauthier pleads guilty

Timmins Police Chief John Gauthier has pleaded guilty to Discredible Conduct.

Gauthier has been the center of controversy after ripping up tickets for a former city councillor, Gary Scripnick.

In May of 2013, Scripnick, who sat on council at the time, ran a red light that he claimed was broken on more than one occasion.

A TPS officer ticketed him for running the light, and gave him a warning for expired insurance.

Gauthier pulled the ticket, which was worth almost $400.

He has not been suspended, as this is not a criminal charge, and the hearing has been put on hold until June.
