Edmonton photo radar supervisor gets five years for sex assault, kidnapping

EDMONTON — A photo radar supervisor in Edmonton has been sentenced to five years for sexually assaulting a woman he pulled over in a traffic stop.

Paul Derksen was found guilty earlier this month on charges of kidnapping and sexual assault.

Court heard that the peace officer was in uniform when he pulled over the driver about 2 a.m. on June 4, 2017.

The woman, who had been celebrating a birthday and drank four beers, testified that the peace officer told her she could be charged with impaired driving and offered to take her home.

She said he convinced her to get into his personal vehicle, then asked her for a favour and drove them to a parking lot.

She said he instructed her perform oral sex on him and she did, then she reported it to police.

Derksen told the trial that the woman grabbed him and kissed him, but he put a stop to it and drove her home.

Queen’s Bench Justice Adam Germain ruled that Derksen’s evidence wasn’t credible. (CTV Edmonton)
