Montreal Canadiens legend Guy Lafleur was unanimously acquitted August 17th by the Quebec Court of Appeal of giving contradictory testimony at his son's bail hearing. Lafleur was convicted more than a year earlier in May, 2009 and later given a suspended sentence. His lawyer, Louis Belleau (bell-OH'), said the ruling by the three-judge panel made Lafleur quite happy. (Lafleur's problems started after he told court in September, 2007 that his son Mark always respected his court-ordered curfew. But during another hearing just a month later, the court heard that Lafleur drove his son to a hotel for an intimate encounter with his 16-year-old girlfriend on two occasions.)
