A Toronto cop who overdosed on cannabis-oil infused chocolate seized in a police raid must wait until Nov. 26 to learn whether he’ll wind up with a criminal record.

Vittorio Dominelli pleaded guilty last Friday to attempting to obstruct justice in front of Justice Mary Misener, who  will pass sentence on Nov. 26. She could impose a sentence that will give Dominelli a criminal record on that day.
