Peter Toth, of Red Deer, AB has been found guilty of impersonating a US Marine during Remembrance Day Ceremonies at three local schools. He was charged with three counts under Section 419 of the criminal code. He plead guilty to two counts, fake medals and fake papers, after saying he was suffering from mental problems and now has PTSD. One count of wearing an unauthorized uniform was dropped by the Crown. Fake Soldier, Frank Gervais, famous for being interviewed on camera during the National Remembrance Day Ceremonies in 2014 received one year probation and 50 hours of community service. During Peter Toth's trial, there were 10 veterans in the court watching him. The judge sentenced Peter to 1 1/2 years of supervised probation and 200 hours of community service. We would have liked more but a win is a win. We feel the courts are seriously looking at fake soldiers and not letting them get away with it.
