Psychologist Dr. Michael Elterman, who spent several hours with Mr. Hodson, told provincial court that the married father of four has an inflated self-image.

Court also heard Mr. Hodson admitted to lying on his university exams, having multiple mistresses and that he didn’t care if his actions cost him his job.

Mr. Hodson was arrested at police headquarters in April 2010 and immediately fired.

He will be sentenced in mid-September.
