Hockey legend Guy Lafleur will have to pay a $100 fine and give $10,000 to charity—but will not be spending any time in jail—for giving contradictory testimony during a 2007 bail hearing for his son, Mark. During the hearing, the former Montreal Canadien said that his son had not broken a curfew, which required he sleep at his parents’ house. But police produced hotel receipts proving Mark had broken the court-imposed curfew while free on bail on charges of assault and forcible confinement. Guy is appealing the verdict in his case, which wrapped up six weeks ago.
