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.
