Former UT Safety Charged with Murder
Tennessean – Former Vols safety Janzen Jackson has been in jail since September and has been charged with the murder of his mother’s long-time boyfriend. According to the Los Angeles Register, Jackson pleaded not guilty last month to the murder of 43-year old Frank Herrera. Prosecutors say Jackson strangled Herrera on Sept. 11 and left his body to decompose in the back of a car for three days. Jackson was arrested Sept. 15 and is being held at the Twin Towers correctional facility in Los Angeles on $1 million bail. Jackson was permanently dismissed from the Vols by Derek Dooley in 2011 after a variety of off-the-field issues. His next court date is scheduled for July 15.
It’s Murrrdaa!! Well I’ll be damned. Murder? Good god. I’m used to hearing about SEC players, past and present, getting locked up for DUI, Weed, Bar fights, or even throwing haymakers at women. But Murder? Shits been taken to a whole new level. This isn’t a UT or SEC problem though because this fucking idiot got the boot by Dooley back in 2011 after numerous incidents. Jackson was a highly touted safety who was suppose to be the next Eric Berry. So much for that shit. His downhill spiral started as a Freshman when he and 2 other teammates came up with the genius idea of robbing someone outside a gas station. In Knoxville. With a pellet gun. WHILE WEARING THEIR UT FOOTBALL GEAR.
