Prosecutor denied filing sexual assault Houston
Houston, United States Of America
Houston, along with other cities, has taken a number of steps in the past few years to make sure that undocumented immigrants do not feel scared while filing reports against crimes. According to Joe Gamaldi, who is the President of the Houston Police Officers' Union, the immigration status of the person should not matter while filing a case.
According to the reports, the victim was in a Houston jail cell where a drunken driver was being held for the night. Under the influence, the drunken driver pulled the victim towards him while exposing himself. The victim cried for help, and the officer rushed to the rescue. When the officers tried to file the report with the prosecutor, he denied to file and asked for the victim's immigration status. The union said that they had fired the prosecutor.
