Welland on sex cam
He’s placed on probation for three years and given a conditional discharge.
June 2010: The MTO met with Richard to further discuss the case.
It was during a barbecue in the Los Angeles backyard of bearded comedic actor Zack Galifianakis that Pelham native Samir Rehem would embark on a journey that Sunday could end with him crowned with the title of having directed the best Canadian music video for 2014.
The video for Kevin Drew’s single didn’t go according to discussions that day, but what resulted when it was shot weeks later in a ballroom at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel turned into what Rehem calls “a charming personal moment” between actor and singer.
August 2008: MTO manager of central region field services of road user safety operations, Glenn Dunphy, is notified by Niagara Regional Police Services that Richard has been arrested for committing indecent acts near Welland.
He was charged with four counts of Committing an Indecent Act.
September 2010: Richard is terminated from his position with the MTO.
The comedic scenes are interspersed with the guitar-playing Drew, the frontman from Broken Social Scene, as the singer carries on with a duet with Feist.
This despite numerous charges against him during his time as a TEO, stemming from incidences in which he masturbated in public on an outdoor trail near a girls’ school in the Welland, Ont. Richard pled guilty to two of the charges and received a conditional discharge and three years’ probation.
He also admitted to having committed the same lewd acts 10 other times, but no further charges were laid.
Glenn Dunphy, manager of the central region field services of road user safety operations, is cited in the decision as expressing concern that at one point, Richard admitted he had acted out of anger towards the police and women. Dunphy had similar concerns about the grievor’s comment about his anger towards women,” the decision reads.
“There are many female drivers on the roads and numerous female Ministry employees that the grievor will encounter during his routine duties.” At least one witness, who worked as a TEO at the Vineland inspection station, expressed in his testimony “concern for the public and the female drivers the grievor would encounter in performing his duties.” He also noted that he and other officers at the Vineland station “did not want to work with the grievor if he came back to work.” Other officers testified in Richard’s defense, including Edie Strachan, who also happened to be president of her OPSEU Local.
