Gerry Lougheed Junior of Sudbury is off the hook for now on two charges of bribery. Without saying why, the Crown Attorney has put the charges on hold but could reinstate then within one year. Last September, the OPP charged Lougheed after allegations he asked a Liberal party member not to seek the Sudbury nomination in a by-election. In return for not running, the party member would be awarded with a job or appointment. Lougheed has maintained his innocence throughout.
