Vernon army camp official guilty

A military judge has found a former Vernon Army Camp instructor guilty of four sex-related charges.

The judge found Capt. Daniel Moriarity guilty on two counts of sexual exploitation, one count of sexual assault and one count of invitation to sexual touching at Moriarity’s court martial hearing in Victoria Monday.

The Canadian Forces National Investigation Service (CFNIS) – the investigative arm of the Canadian Forces Military Police – charged Moriarity in February after he allegedly committed crimes against two cadets at the Vernon Army Cadet Summer Training Centre and the LGen E.C. Ashton Armoury in Victoria.

The incidents allegedly occurred between 2008 and 2011.

The case was brought forward by the chains of command for the two cadets, who contacted the military police about the allegations.

Moriarity is slated to be sentenced on Oct. 31.

The CFNIS is an independent military police unit with a role to investigate serious and sensitive matters in relation to national defence property, DND employees and Canadian Forces personnel.
