“The OPP Association will fully support OPP Provincial Constable Bailey Nicholls to the conclusion of this proceeding. On October 26, 2023 Justice Jon Olver read a verdict of guilty of assault causing bodily harm for Constable Bailey Nicholls after a trial in Orillia Court. We believed that the evidence would result in the acquittal of PC Nicholls and today’s decision is obviously very disappointing. We are analyzing and reviewing the decision of Justice Olver, and once the legal process is concluded, a determination will be made about the merits of an appeal.”
