YRP officer convicted of sexual assault charged again

The officer was previously found guilty on November 17 in an unrelated matter, after a 21-year-old woman alleged that he had sexually assaulted her during a traffic stop in Markham two years prior.

In a release on Thursday, Special Investigations Unit Director Tony Loparco wrote that charges have been laid in relation to incidents that reportedly occurred in 2014.

Ontario's police watchdog says a former officer now serving a jail sentence on a sexual assault conviction is facing new charges.

This is the second time von Seefried has faced sexual assault charges.

The officer remains suspended without pay as he has been since his conviction, Const. Andy Pattenden confirmed to CP24.

The SIU said a 26-year-old woman contacted police on November 2 of last year and alleged she had been sexually assaulted between August and December of 2014.

Pattenden says a Professional Standards Bureau investigation remains ongoing.

The SIU arrested von Seefried on Thursday and he appeared in a Newmarket court.

The SIU is an arms-length agency that investigates deaths, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault involving police in Ontario. "In consideration of the fair trial interests of the accused, the SIU will make no further comment pertaining to this investigation".
