5/5/2014 1:13:00 PM Judge rules on Jeremy Jackson's bail request
Circuit Court Judge Jon Webster has ruled Jeremy Jackson is eligible for bail, which he set at $250,000 or $25,055 cash. Jackson, 33, is accused of murder, a class A felony, in the death of his wife, Jessie Jo Louden-Jackson, 23. He has also been charged with dealing meth, a B felony, and three D felonies. Jackson was arrested April 11 at the Dove-Sharp & Rudicel Funeral Home where visitation was being held for his wife. In the order, Judge Webster noted that at the time of Jackson's arrest, he was not on probation or parole; had no valid driver's license; and did not have a passport. As far as his criminal record, Jackson had one prior B felony conviction at the age of 17 from Johnson County for dealing in cocaine. He served the entire sentence, after having his probation revoked. The defendant has been a resident of Jennings for about 15 years. His father lives here as well and his children live in Decatur County. Considering all the relevant factors, the judge set Jackson's bond at $250,000. Jackson was represented at the hearing by co-counsels John Roche and Jeremy Seal.
