An RCMP instructor’s assault charge has been withdrawn following the successful completion of the Regina Alternative Measures Program (RAMP) — and the complainant in the incident is not happy about it.

Charlie Littlemore said he was invited to attend RAMP, but didn’t make it through a single meeting before deciding against further participation.

But Cpl. Philippe Marcel Cleroux continued with the program and, on Tuesday, had his charge tossed out after completing RAMP.

According to RAMP’s website, the program accepts participants based on a number of criteria, among them that the offender accepts responsibility for his or her actions and that there is sufficient evidence to support the charge. Certain assault charges can be accepted as long as the offender doesn’t have a substantial record for similar offences or recent charges, didn’t use a weapon and didn’t commit the assault in the course of family violence, among other parameters.
