MONTREAL — The lawyer for a Montreal police officer on trial for sexual assault is cross-examining the complainant today and focusing on her behaviour during the alleged assault.

Roger Fréchette, a Montreal police officer, faces one count of sexual assault against a woman from Ontario who was visiting Montreal in February 2019.

He is the first police officer to be charged following an independent investigation by Quebec’s police watchdog, the Bureau des enquêtes indépendantes.

The alleged victim is a woman in her 40s originally from Ontario whose identity is protected by a publication ban.
