He kissed two young women who had been witnesses in a criminal case.

Before he was arrested and forced into retirement, Fisher served 29 years on the force and served as a member of the counter-exploitation team.

That team investigates prostitution.

The Crown had been calling for 18 to 20 months jail time, and the judge has deemed that appropriate.
