A Calgary police officer who was accused of assault and uttering threats in an incident involving his ex-wife has pleaded guilty to the charges.
In October 2016, the Calgary Police Service’s Domestic Conflict Unit began an investigation involving Jeffery Duggan, a 16-year veteran of the force, and his ex-wife.
The woman reported that Duggan confronted her at her home, while on duty, and threatened her current boyfriend and attempted to force his way inside.
The female victim said that she also received two abusive emails and had another argument with Duggan at another time.
Court heard on Friday that the Duggan, 50, suffers from depression and PTSD and has been seeking treatment.
Lawyers on both sides asked for no jail time and recommended two years’ probation for the offences.
The judge in the case reserved his decision.
