Retired justice Lee Ferrier finds Sgt. Michael Ferry was “deliberately dishonest” under oath regarding arrest of Ryan Mitchell.
Lying under oath in a court trial is a criminal offence of PERJURY which demands a jail sentence because it strikes at the very core of the administration of justice – especially when it’s a police officer who is wilfully misleading the court. “Sgt. Ferry was found to have given incredible testimony under oath that can only have been deliberately dishonest. Other factors included Ferry’s previous disciplinary findings involving “serious dishonesty,” the fact that he was a supervisor whose illegal retaliatory conduct had occurred in full public view, and that he had failed to respect a citizen’s right to be left alone.” We defence lawyers will remember this officer’s name.
