Sean Chu disciplined for physical contact with a 16-year-old girl when he was police officer
On October 16, 2021, CBC reported that Sean Chu was found guilty of discreditable conduct when he was a police officer for having inappropriate physical contact with a minor in 1997.
CBC reports that at the time of the incident, Chu was 34 and the girl was 16. Chu does not deny this incident. He admits that he was found guilty of misconduct for touching the girl's leg under a table at a public place. On October 18, 2021, CTV reported that this incident occurred at the Husky House restaurant while Chu was on duty.
Chu states that subsequent to the incident in the restaurant, he took the girl to his home where they engaged in “consensual sexual foreplay”. The teen, now a woman, has stated that the sexual activity was not consensual but rather sexual assault. CBC reports that a firearm was involved.
CTV: Chu rationale for not knowing victim was a minor is contradicted
Chu claims that he didn’t know that the victim was underage because he met her “at a licensed establishment where all persons are required to be 18 years of age or older”. However, CTV has reported that the incident in which Chu touched the victim’s leg did not take place at an 18-plus licensed establishment, but rather the Husky House restaurant which was open to minors.
