The Toronto police officer found guilty of attempted murder – in the fatal shooting of a teen on an empty streetcar – has been charged with perjury and attempting to obstruct justice.

The professional standards unit from Toronto police began investigating Constable James Forcillo – after the province’s police watchdog laid a charge in November – alleging he breached conditions of his bail.

Forcillo was sentenced to six years in prison last year for his role in the shooting of Sammy Yatim – which set off a wave of public outrage after video of the incident went viral.

Forcillo had been out on bail on house arrest while he appealed his conviction – but had his bail revoked after police said he failed to live with his surety – or notify officials of a change of address.

The officer remains in custody and is scheduled to appear in court to face the new charges on December 29th.
