Bre McAdam (CKOM News Talk 650) – An RCMP officer stationed in Rosetown received an absolute discharge for an assault charge laid in November 2011.
Cpl. Ron Robinson was accused of assaulting his wife at a Rosetown home and pleaded not guilty in December 2011.
The 10-year member of the RCMP was on administrative duty during the criminal case.
RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Rob King says Robinson is back on operational duty, but an internal investigation is ongoing.
“One could be ordered to go through and face formal discipline or informal discipline. Both can be contested by the person who may be facing the discipline,” said King.
He said punishment can range from a “talking to” to a dismissal, but he’s not sure when that will be decided.
An absolute discharge means there is no conviction and the case is closed.
