TYLER, Texas – A long-time Smith County Precinct One Constable has pleaded guilty to federal criminal tax violations in the Eastern District of Texas, announced Acting U.S. Attorney Brit Featherston today.

 

Henry Phillip Jackson, 65, of Tyler, Texas pleaded guilty to four counts of willful failure to file federal income tax returns today before U.S. Magistrate Judge K. Nicole Mitchell.

 

           According to information presented in court, Jackson, who has served as an elected constable since 1999, received income from 2010-2013 that required him to file federal income tax returns for those years.  However, Jackson failed to file those returns and now owes more than $160,000 in taxes.

 

            Under federal statutes, Jackson faces up to one year in federal prison for each count at sentencing.  The maximum statutory sentence prescribed by Congress is provided here for information purposes, as the sentencing will be determined by the court based on the advisory sentencing guidelines and other statutory factors.  A sentencing hearing will be scheduled after the completion of a presentence investigation by the U.S. Probation Office.

 

             This case was investigated by the Internal Revenue Service – Criminal Investigations and the Federal Bureau of Investigation and is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Frank Coan.

And while Jackson is possibly looking at going to jail, former presidential advisor Alfred Charles "Al" Sharpton Jr. owes millions in unpaid taxes.

Jackson needed to go to jail the first time. and I hope he does go to jail this time. He need to resign now. He is unfit for office.
