The Frederick Police Department has identified and arrested a subject on several sex offense charges. 

In August 2023, Det.

Detective DeWees and Special Agent Yesensky of the FBI worked quickly with the States Attorney’s Office on the investigation.  Detective DeWees authored and was granted search and seizure warrants for Jackson’s residence and vehicle.
