PEEL POLICE CLARIFY EARLIER STATEMENTS BY POLICE OF WHETHER FEMALE LAWYER ARRESTED AT THE COURT HOUSE WAS TAKEN INTO CUSTODY WITH HER COURT ATTIRE
Brampton – On Thursday, February 12,2015, an arrest took place at the A. Grenville and William Davis Courthouse involving a Criminal Defence Lawyer. As a result of this arrest there was a wealth of speculation surrounding the public circumstances and related details of the arrest.
On Friday, February 13, 2015, Peel Regional Police issued a press release in an attempt to clarify what were believed to be inaccuracies that had been reported both via social and traditional media. At the time of the release Peel Regional Police vehemently believed that what was contained in that release (Friday) was factually accurate. Peel Regional Police would like to correct the following details published in that release:
Upon arrest Ms. Liscio was indeed handcuffed in her court attire and escorted to a discreet location within the Court Bureau.
Following her arrest, Ms. Liscio was escorted by both uniformed and plainclothes officers to a marked cruiser.
It has subsequently been determined that the information that was originally relied upon was in fact incorrect. Peel Regional Police sincerely regrets publishing the misinformation and the impact that it has had on members of the community, members of the media and Ms. Liscio.
Peel Regional Police will not be speaking to any of specific details of the investigation as the matter is before the courts.
