Colorado Sheriff’s Official Charged with Assaulting His Wife

Major Carlos Jackson of the Denver Sheriff’s Office has been charged with misdemeanor domestic violence and assault for four attacks on his wife. Jackson was arrested June 17th and was later released on $2500 bail. Jackson has been placed on paid administrative leave. Jackson’s wife is from the Philippines and had communicated with Jackson for a year via the Internet before agreeing to marry him in April of this year and move to the United States. According to the police report, Jackson beat her with a belt, choked her, hit her several times on the head, threatened to kill her, and raped her. In response to concerns that Jackson would be treated lightly due to his high-ranking police position, the local District Attorney has promised that the case will be fully investigated.
