Charges Drop in Favor of Two Immigration Officers

Immigration Clerk Sheree Flores escaped a charge today. Another clerk, Ann Smith pressed charges of harm against Flores who then entered a counter charge of common assault against Smith. The charges on both women were dropped when the matter went before Chief Magistrate Sharon Frazer. Frazer adviced the women to settle the cases out of court and stressed that they both have important things to lose, including jail time if found guilty. Flores was willing to settle the matter but Smith was not. Reports are that Smith was being pressured by higher-ups to settle the matter. The women were placed on interdiction after a scuffle broke out between the two parties on March ninth, 2019. On that evening, a work van was transporting employees to their respective houses.  It is alleged that Flores attacked Smith, saying that Smith’s personal belongings were in her way as she was exiting the van. According to reports, the driver of the van had to intervene to remove Flores from on top of Smith who was pinned between the chairs.
