An additional five charges – including one of sexual assault – have been laid against Surrey RCMP Cpl. Peter Leckie, on top of an existing nine charges which were announced in June.
It’s alleged he used his position as a police officer to have “intimate relationships” with women, while on and off duty.
On June 29, it was announced that Leckie was charged with seven counts of breach of trust and two counts of obtaining computer service by fraud in relation to the allegations.
The latest charges include three more counts of breach of trust, one additional count of computer services by fraud and one count of sexual assault.
The additional charges were laid on Wednesday, Nov. 23, according to Surrey RCMP.
Leckie’s next court appearance related to these charges is scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 14.
His original charges were related to contact with three alleged victims, between January 2014 and October 2020.
When RCMP released Leckie’s photo to the public in June, however, they said there could be more witnesses who have information that could further the investigation.
Leckie has been with the Surrey RCMP since 2010.
Since the first charges emerged, he has been suspended with pay, but police said this could “move towards suspension without pay.”
