A police officer, who ate a marijuana-laced chocolate bar he stole during a raid of an illegal dispensary, has received a conditional sentence.
Vittorio Dominelli, who pleaded guilty last month to obstruction of justice, will spend the first six months under house arrest and the remaining three months under supervision.
Dominelli, who has since resigned from the police service, was part of a team that raided the pot shop last January.
The 36-year-old officer took several cannabis-oil-infused chocolate bars.
Court heard Dominelli and another officer then shared some of the chocolate hours later while conducting surveillance outside an after-hours bar and got extremely high.
His lawyer felt Dominelli should be discharged, given he had already give up his career, but Justice Mary Misener said that would be contrary to the public interest.
In explaining her ruling, she said Dominelli acted recklessly in order to satisfy his curiosity about the drug.
