A local tradesman has filed notice of a lawsuit totaling over eight million dollars against the OPP and Highland Shores Children’s Aid Society, among other entities.
Peter Evans, of the Brighton area, was charged with break and enter and sexual assault, among other charges, in 2009.
Last year, in Belleville Superior court, he was acquitted of all charges against him.
In the notice of claim filed in Cobourg Court Friday, Evans claims he has been illegally and maliciously separated from his family by the Children’s Aid Society.
Other organizations named in the $8.5 million suit are the Trenton Christian School, the Attorney General, the Minister of Youth and Children Services, the Quinte West Police board, and two individuals.
None of the allegations have been proven in court.
