CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION RESULTS IN INDICTMENT & TERMINATION OF DETENTION OFFICER

(HOUSTON, TX) – A detention officer at the Harris County Jail has been charged with official oppression after exposing himself to a female inmate. His employment at the Harris County Jail has been terminated.

Drake Jackson, 40, is accused of sexually offensive behavior while in the presence of a female inmate. The inmate made an outcry to jail personnel earlier this month and an investigation was immediately conducted by the Harris County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) Criminal Investigations Bureau. The result of the investigation was presented to the Harris County District Attorney’s Office which filed the charge of official oppression against Mr. Jackson.

“I will not tolerate any misconduct from anyone on my staff“, said Sheriff Adrian Garcia. “I commend the victim in this case for speaking up and I encourage anyone else who may find themselves in a similar situation to do the same, whether they’re in my custody or not.”

The HCSO has a zero tolerance policy and will investigate all allegations of sexual misconduct.  

Drake Jackson is free after posting a $1,000 non-arrest bond. He had been employed by the HCSO since 2003.
