Two Toronto-based police officers were suspended without pay during a criminal investigation into their actions for which they were charged — but after an appeal turned that decision around, they sought compensation for the suspension.

Edward Ing and John Cruz, two police constables with the Toronto Police Services Board, were charged with assaulting and causing bodily harm to a civilian.

They were charged and convicted (despite pleading not guilty) and received a one-year conditional sentence.
