Derek Fildebrandt, the independent MLA for Strathmore-Brooks, was fined $402 in Edmonton traffic court on Monday after he was found guilty of a hit and run back in June of 2016.

Fildebrandt was accused of leaving the scene after backing into a neighbour’s van with his truck.

He pleaded not guilty saying he didn’t do it and that if he had, he would have left a note.

The commissioner hearing the case said he believed the neighbours account of what happened and Fildebrandt was found guilty and fined.

He is also facing charges related to alleged unlawful hunting practices and is scheduled to appear in Didsbury Provincial Court on February 2, 2018.
