Hockey legend Guy Lafleur has been found guilty of giving contradictory testimony.
The former NHL star, who played much of his career with the Montreal Canadiens, was on trial this spring on a single charge of giving contradictory testimony during his son Mark’s bail hearing in 2007.
Lafleur agreed to supervise his son at the time and enforce a court-ordered curfew. But he failed to tell a judge that he drove his son to a hotel to spend a night with his 16-year-old girlfriend while he was under curfew….
Lafleur faces up to 14 years in prison.
Update 1:30pm ET (Alanah): Guy Lafleur’s lawyer was a guest on AM 640’s Leafs Lunch today, further explaining the consequences of this ruling for his client. Follow this link, then look for the interview titled “Guy Lafleur’s Lawyer” and you can listen to the full interview.
