Suspended N.S. police officer faces new charges after Newfoundland arrest

HALIFAX-TC Media — A suspended Halifax Regional Police officer facing sexual assault charges was arrested in Newfoundland last weekend, after police say he was once again found in breach of his conditions.

On Tuesday, the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary (RNC) told HRP they had charged Const. Chris Mosher with nine counts of breaching his court-imposed conditions last Saturday on George Street in St. John’s.

According to a release, the Newfoundland police launched an investigation after receiving a complaint from a member of the public on May 7.

Mosher was arrested just after 12 a.m. on May 11 at a licensed establishment on the popular bar-lined street, according to police.

Police say Mosher remains in custody at a St. John’s jail.

Mosher, 30, was first charged by the Serious Incident Response Team in February with sexual assault and administering a noxious substance with intent to aggrieve after an alleged incident last November.

He is due in court for that case on June 17 for a preliminary inquiry, and remains suspended from the Halifax Regional Police without pay or benefits.

Mosher was charged with breaching his conditions multiple times last year, including two incidents where he was drinking alcohol in July and August.
