Montreal Canadiens legend Guy Lafleur has been given a one-year suspended sentence, fined $100, and ordered to donate $10,000 to charity for giving contradictory testimony during his son's 2007 bail hearing.

The 57-year-old Lafleur was sentenced Thursday by Quebec Court Judge Claude Parent.

The Crown Prosecutors had been seeking a conditional sentence to be served in the form of community service, while Lafleur's attorney sought a fine.

Lafleur is appealing the guilty verdict handed to him on May 1st and has also filed a $3.5 million lawsuit against the Crown and the Montreal police over the warrant used to arrest him.
