Dr. Harry Jackson, a former Naval intelligence officer and father was being criminally prosecuted by the Fairfax County Commonwealth Attorney’s Office for accusing a leftist activist of grooming behavior.
The incident occurred after Jorge Torrico, a member of the TJ Alumni Action Group attended a TJ PTSA meeting.
Jorge interacted with the student government president, a high school senior during the meeting. After the meeting, Jackson took to Twitter and accused him of grooming behavior.
Jackson’s lawyer Marina Melvin wrote this about the case:
Dr. Harry Jackson is the former president of the Parent Teacher Student Association at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, current Vice President of the Fairfax County Association for the Gifted, and host of the streaming show Education Matters
Dr. Jackson is a professor at numerous colleges and universities and an education activist in Fairfax County, Virginia. He is also the African American Community Liaison for Fairfax GOP and campaigned for Governor Youngkin as part of Educators for Youngkin. Dr. Jackson retired from the U.S. Navy after honorably serving our country.
Dr. Harry Jackson is being criminally prosecuted by the Fairfax County Commonwealth Attorney’s Office for exercising his First Amendment rights as a conservative.
Harry Jackson is being unconstitutionally prosecuted for the allegedly offensive content of his tweets and a YouTube video – criminal persecution in violation of Dr. Jackson’s First Amendment rights. Dr. Jackson is accused of voicing concerns about an adult who sought to spend time alone with minors at a local school.
Jackson was facing four Class 3 Misdemeanor charges over the accusation.
Now this: the motion to dismiss the case with prejudice was granted:
The judge did not reach the constitutional issues of the statute that was used to charge the “grooming” words.
We will have to fight this statute in the VA legislature.
