The Director of the Special Investigations Unit, Joseph Martino, has reasonable grounds to believe a Sault Ste. Marie Police Service officer committed criminal offences.
The SIU investigations concluded that there was sufficient evidence to proceed with sexual assault charges against the officer in relation to two women arising from incidents in December 2022.
As a result of the SIU investigation, Sgt Marc Dubie is facing charges of two counts of sexual assault, contrary to section 271 of the Criminal Code.
Sgt Dubie is required to appear before the Ontario Court of Justice at 426 Queen Street E. in Sault Ste. Marie on January 8, 2024, at 9 a.m.
As the matter is before the courts, and in consideration of the fair trial interests of the accused, the SIU will not provide further comment on the investigation.
