Commissioner Steven Jackson pleads not guilty to false impersonation of police officer
BOSSIER PARISH, La. (KSLA) - Arraignment was held for Caddo Commissioner Steven Jackson on Tuesday, Feb. 28.
Jackson pled not guilty to one count of false impersonation of a police officer.
The Bossier City Police Department issued a felony warrant Jan. 5 on the charge. Jackson said he voluntarily submitted himself to Bossier authorities Saturday, Jan. 7.
“At this time, there are still a lot of facts that are in the process, that are in the discovery phase of this case, so we’re are confident that once that discovery is produced and we present the other side of this case, that Mr. Jackson will be exonerated of these charges. As you know, everything that’s been presented thus far is only one-sided, so there is another side of this story that hasn’t yet been told,” said Jackson’s attorney, Courtney Harris.
The next hearing will be held on April 14.
