Mic was right: Every AGW is a criminal. This one, at least 61 times.
Tremaine Jackson, a 13-year “veteran” AGW in Phoenix, AZ, has been arrested and charged with 61 criminal counts, including sexually assaulting a woman stopped over a trumped-up traffic “violation.”
A statement released by the AGW’s department reads in part:
“… we received an initial complaint about some inappropriate comments by Trooper Jackson to a female motorist,” said DPS Director Col. Frank Milstead. “While we were investigating that May complaint, on June 11th, we received a second complaint. This one also alleging inappropriate commentary and then also criminal behavior to the extent of sexual abuse.”
DPS officials said a total of eight women have come forward so far.
“Trooper Jackson was using his position as Arizona State Trooper to bargain leniency for favor,” said Col. Milstead.
On Tuesday night, Jackson was taken to the 4th Avenue Jail before his first court appearance. He was booked on multiple counts of sexual abuse, attempted sexual abuse, sexual extortion, unlawful imprisonment, kidnapping, harassment, forgery, and tampering with a public record, among other charges.
So far, eight women have come forward with allegations, but with the timeline only starting last October, Jackson’s entire career with the DPS is being scrutinized.
DPS is urging those who have been victimized, or know someone who has been victimized, to call the department at (602) 223-2389, or submit a complaint form online.
