MONTREAL (AP) -The son of Montreal Canadiens great Guy Lafleur was acquitted Friday of two counts of sexual assault after having pleaded guilty this week to more than a dozen other charges.
Judge Serge Boisvert said Mark Lafleur is a drug addict who lacked credibility and it's likely Lafleur committed the crimes with which he was charged.
The judge added there was enough reasonable doubt given the evidence, and the victim was heavily intoxicated when the acts are alleged to have happened. Boisvert called the victim's testimony credible but not reliable.
Lafleur had pleaded guilty to 14 other charges against him, which include assault, uttering threats to a minor and forcible confinement.
