LAFLEUR HELPS SON SCORE WITH 16YO WHILE OUT ON BAIL While Andy Reid gets roasted for the behavior of his two felonious sons, hockey legend Guy Lafleur is getting similar (and justifiable) treatment north of the border.
The ASSOCIATED PRESS reports Lafleur’s “23-year-old son faces more than 20 criminal charges, including sexually assaulting a minor, armed assault, uttering threats, and forcible confinement between 2004 and 2007.”
Lafleur recently petitioned the court to allow his son, who has been living at halfway houses, to live with him full-time until the trial is over (it doesn’t start until May!). But his request was denied because the local authorities found out Lafleur was allowing his 23-year-old son to hook up with a 16-year-old in motel rooms whenever a visit by the court was allowed. Lafleur “has since admitted that he drove his son to hotels to spend the night with his girlfriend.”
