OTTAWA — Military police say they have laid five charges, including one of sexual assault, against a member of the Royal Canadian Air Force based at CFB Trenton.
Police say the charges against Sgt. Raymond Euper relate to an alleged incident last summer on Ellesmere Island in Nunavut, where military personnel were fixing communications systems.
