Mountie who had police-car sex with her superior shouldn’t lose her job; Her boss and his superiors rather should
VANCOUVER – An RCMP officer who had an on-going affair with her boss — including having sex in a police car —shouldn’t lose her job while her superior simply loses 10 days pay, her lawyer told an RCMP panel. Larry McGonigal told the panel Wednesday it would be inappropriate and disconcerting for Const. Susan Gastaldo to be fired after the panel found her guilty of disgraceful conduct. Her superior officer, Staff Sgt. Travis Pearson, has already been reprimanded and docked 10 days pay by the same panel after admitting to the affair and using a Blackberry to exchange suggestive emails.
