Former West Jefferson Attorney Arrested For DWI (2018-12-14 16:04:19)

Former West Jefferson attorney, Andrew C. Jackson Jr., was arrested last Saturday for driving while intoxicated.

The Ashe Post and Times reports Jackson was also arrested on October 15th for allegedly invading privacy by using a camera to record and take photos of a woman in a bathroom without her knowing.

According to the report, at the time of both arrests, Jackson was under a four year suspension from the North Carolina State Bar for not reporting that one of his employees was embezzling money from his law firm.

One of the conditions of the suspension was that Jackson couldn’t violate any United States laws except for minor traffic infractions.

Because he broke the law under suspension, Jackson was officially disbarred by the North Carolina State Bar.
