Dropped Concealed Carry Charge Relief for Area Man


A former Springfield man says he has paid a high price for exercising his constitutional rights.

 

Donnell Jackson became a local face in the concealed carry debate as he faced prosecution for unlawfully carrying a weapon.

 

He was arrested in 2011, a year before a federal appeals court struck down the state’s ban on concealed carry.

 

But the charges were not dropped until 7 months after the court ruling, when the state passed a new concealed carry law.

 

Appearing live on 970 WMAY’s “Bishop On Air,” Jackson says having that felony charge hanging over him was stressful and hurt his ability to find a job.

 

Now that the charge is dropped, he’s hoping to land a job in healthcare.
