Statesville Council candidate David Jackson won’t answer WSIC questions about criminal conviction


STATESVILLE, N.C. (WSIC NEWS) – Statesville City Council candidate David Jackson won’t answer questions from WSIC about a 2004 criminal conviction for possession of a counterfeit marker.

Jackson was charged in March 2004 with felony possession of a counterfeit market. He pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor version of the charge and received a prayer for judgement. Those are commonly used in traffic cases to avoid license points.

WSIC attempted to ask Mr. Jackson about the conviction by phone, but the call immediately became disconnected. He did not respond to our text messages and declined to do an interview last week.

Jackson won the October election, but not with enough votes to avoid a runoff Tuesday with Frederick Foster.
