Emmerth Flowers is Acquitted of Firearm Charges

Emmerth Flowers

Customs Officer Emmerth Flowers is tonight a free man after he saw two serious firearm related offenses withdrawn. Less than two years ago, on July thirty-first, 2014, police charged Flowers with the offenses of altering a firearm without the permission of the Commissioner of Police and for being in possession of a firearm license. But this morning, in the court room of Magistrate Carlon Mendoza, the charges were dismissed after the magistrate upheld a no case submission made by attorney Anthony Sylvester on Flowers behalf. Allegations made were that Flowers had a license for a sixteen gauge shotgun, but that he altered the firearm by cutting the barrel of it and made it into a sawed-off shotgun. In his no case submission, Sylvester submitted that the prosecutor, Sergeant Claude Pitts was not able to prove that the firearm license was issue for a twenty-two-inch weapon. Magistrate Mendoza agreed and dismissed the charges from Flowers.
