In March 2018, the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office received information that Joshua Steven Jackson was in possession of child pornography. Deputies then discovered Jackson had downloaded almost a 1,000 images of child porn.

Jackson, 38, was sentenced under California’s Three Strikes law, which hands down stricter sentences for repeat offenders who commit serious or violent felonies.

In 2002, Jackson was convicted of three separate counts of serious and violent child sexual abuse of children under the age of fourteen. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison.

In 2012, Jackson was convicted of possession of child pornography and sentenced to serve four years in state prison.

In 2015 and again in 2016, prosecutors attempted to commit Jackson to the state hospital as a sexually violent predator, according to the District Attorney’s Office. However, two consecutive juries were unable to determine Jackson met the legal criteria.

He was released from custody in April 2016.

Juries are filled with idiots – they’re almost as stupid as the voters and elected officials who are responsible for emptying our prisons and dumping violent offenders on the street. These child victims never get a break from these evil scum,
