DEMAND FOR RETRACTION/CORRECTION
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (December 3, 2009)
Please be advised that at 8:10 am on the KUSI News morning segment, District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis made a false and misleading statement regarding the defendant in a medical marijuana case, People v. Jovan Jackson.
Contrary to Ms. Dumanis’ assertion, Mr. Jackson was not found guilty of Possession For Sale of Ecstasy and Xanax as a result of items found inside of his residence. In response to the question; ” this person was convicted of selling Xanax and Ecstasy,” Ms. Dumanis responded “that’s right.“ That is not right. He was found guilty of Simple Possession Ecstasy and Xanax. He was never accused of any other sales charges.
We are very disappointed that Ms. Dumanis and KUSI allowed this misinformation to be disseminated to the public.
This is an authorized statement from Mr. Jackson’s defense team.
