Remember self-appointed captain, Simon “many-names” Rothschild (aka De Rothschild, McDonald, Surfer, Meyer, Weinstein, Costello) who was the “commanding officer” of an alternative cadet program in the Cornwall, Ontario area?
It has been said that “A Man Who Is His Own Lawyer Has a Fool for a Client”, Rothschild has proved that adage in spades as he unsuccessfully represented himself during the legal proceedings…
After 3 years of his court room theatrics during which he claimed the crown’s disclosures to him were lost, stolen or eaten by his dog, alluded to have been a special forces officer holding a special, super, secret security clearance and haranguing witnesses with ridiculous assertions all compounded by Covid-19 delays, his dick dancing has come to an end.
On 3 September 2021, Mr Rothschild was found guilty of 1 count under s419 – Unlawful use of military uniforms or certificates; and 1 count under s130 – Personating a peace officer. He was awarded a $1000 fine plus a victim’s surcharge of $300 for each count (total $2.6k) and 18 months probation. Uniforms seized from his military themed tickle trunk were forfeited.

SVC is most appreciative of the OPP for their tenacity in pursing this matter, the patience of expert witnesses who were forced to endured his histrionic antics and to the courts for recognizing that stolen valour is not a victimless crime.
