Woman ordered to keep the peace after assaulting police

A St George woman will be required to keep the peace for one year or spend three months in prison after pleading guilty to assaulting a police officer.

Charmaine Samantha Ifill of Ellerton Gardens, St George appeared before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant Thursday morning in the No. 2 District ‘A’ Criminal Court, charged with assaulting Constable Elton Prescott earlier in the day.

She also pleaded guilty to the charge of resisting the same officer during the execution of his duty.

In outlining the details of the matter, Sergeant Cameron Gibbons told the court that on the day in question, Prescott attempted to intervene in a verbal altercation between the accused and another woman. During the course of identifying himself as a police officer, Ifill told him: “I do not care who you is.”

A second attempt at identifying himself was met with the same response, in addition to a push.

“I am sorry for the incident, Ma’am. It was a misunderstanding,” Ifill told the magistrate today before she was placed on the bond.

    Misunderstanding? You are too disrespectful. You know exactly what you were doing.

    Sometimes people need to think before they reacted.

    In the news this morning I read a man was convicted on for 4 charges (gun related) and received 8 years in which he will spend 4 years and days to complete the sentence because of time served. Now this man used a gun while robbing the elderly person of his gold chain and shot him in the commission of the crime. For the 4 charges that he was convicted of, I will say he was given 2 years each for them. For the armed robbery the sentence should have started at 15 years and then the wounding should be more but this guy got a slap on the wrist, that`s why these judges should be elected and not selected because when their names come of election some other judge that promise to be tough on crime could be elected.

    Disrespect the police and get a slap on the wrist. The action of the police is deemed unprofessional and the whole force is castigated. Call in programs become hot with people accusing the police of misusing their authority.
