Ex-Canadian police officer sentenced for sex abuse of minors on Indian reservation

A former Canadian police officer was sentenced Tuesday for sexually abusing minors on an Indian reservation in northern Minnesota.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office says 33-year-old Brady John Hillis, a Canadian citizen who used to be an Ontario Provincial police officer, was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison, followed by 10 years of supervised release.

On June 22, 2018, Hillis was seen on surveillance video at the Fortune Bay Resort and Casino on the Bois Forte Indian Reservation making sexual contact with two minors under 12 years old.

He pleaded guilty to two counts of abusive sexual contact with a minor in January.
