OTTAWA — A one-time senior aide to former prime minister Stephen Harper has been found guilty of influence peddling by Canada's highest court.

Bruce Carson's case will now be sent back to the trial judge for sentencing after an 8-1 decision by the Supreme Court of Canada that rejects his interpretation of the influence-peddling law.

He could face up to five years in prison.

Carson worked in the Prime Minister's Office as a senior adviser between 2006 and 2008 and briefly in 2009, during Harper's tenure.
