MONTREAL -- Hockey Hall of Famer 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.

Quebec Court Judge Claude Parent sentenced Lafleur on Thursday in Montreal.

The prosecution had suggested a conditional sentence to be served in the community while his lawyers had asked for a fine.

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

The 57-year-old Lafleur won five Stanley Cups in 14 seasons in Montreal.
