An Ontario correctional officer who was fired for not telling her employer about a drunk-driving charge for two years has been reinstated with a suspension in place of dismissal by the Ontario Grievance Settlement Board.

Camila Lunario, 32, was a correctional officer for the province of Ontario. Hired in December 2006, she worked at a few different facilities in the Greater Toronto Area including the Toronto Jail, ending up at the new Toronto South Detention Centre in December 2013.
