Lincoln Man Sentenced for Harboring a Fugitive

United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that on November 19, 2014, a Lincoln man was sentenced to two and one-half years (30 months) in prison for harboring a fugitive.  Senior United States District Judge Richard G. Kopf ordered that Aaron James Jackson, 28, serve two years on supervised release after the completion of his prison term.

On March 20, 2014, members of the Metro Fugitive Task Force informed Aaron Jackson of the existence of a federal warrant for the arrest of his brother, Jason Robert Jackson.  At that time, Aaron Jackson claimed not to know the whereabouts of his brother.  However, information provided to law enforcement indicated that between March 20, 2014, and April 4, 2014, Aaron Jackson helped his brother avoid arrest.

This case was investigated by the Metro Fugitive Task Force, including officers and agents of the United States Marshals Service, the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Department, and the Lincoln Police Department.
