VANCOUVER - An officer who was among the four Mounties at the Vancouver airport the night Robert Dziekanski died has been found not guilty of lying at a public inquiry into the Polish immigrant's death.
Const. Bill Bentley bent over and cried into a tissue after the verdict.
B.C. Supreme Court Justice Mark McEwan, who heard the case without a jury, said for a conviction, the Crown had to prove that Bentley knowingly made a false statement, but prosecutors failed to do that.
