A Cornwall police officer who was suspended more than two years ago has been charged in Quebec with a variety of sex-related offenses.
Following a two-year investigation, Sûreté du Québec officers charged Const. Pascal Rossignol who appeared in a Valleyfield Court Friday.
He faces charges including invitation to sexual touching, child luring on the internet, and two counts of prostitution of a person under the age of 18.
On Oct. 13 2010 an allegation was made to the Cornwall Community Police who referred the matter to the Special Investigations Unit (SIU).
The SIU determined that the alleged offences occurred in the Province of Quebec and subsequently the investigation was referred to the Sûreté du Québec, professional standards division.
Rossignol has been a member of the Cornwall Community Police Service since May 22, 2007. He was relieved of his duties Oct. 13, 2010 and remains under suspension with pay.
