"Tasering" Cop Aquitted
Jan, 31 2007 - 1:50 PM

EDMONTON/630CHED - A courtroom broke out in applause Wednesday afternoon when a judge acquitted a police officer of assault with a weapon.

On Christmas Eve, 2003, a 15-year-old break-and-enter suspect was strip-searched and stun-gunned at a police station.

The officer who zapped the teen - Constable Todd Hudec - was charged.

Judge Ray Bradley heard two different versions of what happened. He went along with Hudec’s version.

The judge made no mention of Hudec failing to include the tasering in his police reports, or why he did not take the boy to hospital – which violated police policy.

Hudec wouldn’t comment on the ruling. The teen did, saying "What do you expect? He’s a cop." The teen also pointed out that two other judges had criticized the Tasering, one calling it "excessive," another a "shocking abuse of police powers."

This is not the end of the matter. The teen is suing Hudec for $100,000.
