Inspector freed of the charge of indecent assault against female officer
Police inspector Delroy Ferron was on Friday freed of the charge of indecent assault against a female police officer, when he appeared in the Kingston and St Andrew parish court.
Ferron was arrested and charged in October 2020 following a ruling by the Director of Public Prosecutions.
The allegations were that he took the complainant to the now disbanded mobile reserve compound, held her down and touched her inappropriately, on March 27, 2019.
In court, defence lawyers pointed out that the version of the alleged incident given in court by the complainant differed significantly from the version she gave to another police officer.
Senior parish judge Broderick Smith, agreed.
In finding Ferron not guilty, the judge said the cross-examination of the complainant by Ferron’s attorneys, brought to light several troubling issues.
