Alexandre Coderre, the son of Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre, has pleaded guilty to charges filed against him in a case alleging he filed false accusations to police after taking on enormous debts.
Coderre appeared in a Montreal courthouse on Tuesday where he pleaded guilty to filing a false police report and two counts of fraud.
The 21-year-old also pleaded guilty to two new fraud charges, bringing the total amount of admitted fraud to more than $16,000.
The prosecutor in the case said Coderre amassed large bills for “internet services” and paid for those services using credit cards.
