Former Montreal Canadiens legend Guy Lafleur is facing a sentence of up to 14 years for acts of perjury and contradictory evidence. Funny, I didn’t even know he was bulimic nor was it illegal.
Lafleur told a 2007 court that his son, Mark, had respected his court-ordered curfew and was at home with his parents during his weekends away from rehab. Of course this is true. There was nothing I wanted more on my weekend getaways from rehab than to spend seventy-two hours with the catalysts for my addiction. A month later it was revealed, through magic detective work and receipts, that Mark Lafleur spent at least one weekend in a hotel.
Guy Lafleur is apparently living by his own justice system and creating grey areas for himself. When asked about his contradictions he responded with, “What was important for me was that he respected his curfew and not use drugs or alcohol. Whether it was at our place or a hotel, it didn’t matter.”
Sure Guy that makes perfect sense. Everybody know that hotels don’t allow drugs and alcohol into their rooms. They especially don’t allow them when you’re shack up with a sixteen year-old girl. Zut Alors!!
Lafleur will receive the judge’s decision June 18. Mark Lafleur is currently serving 15 months’ house arrest.
