DOJ Secretly Files Sentencing Memorandum Against J6 Defendant Micajah Jackson

Marine Corps disabled veteran Micajah Jackson was enjoying President’s Day weekend when he first learned that an update in his federal case may have been leaked to the media.

Jackson currently faces a misdemeanor charge of parading, demonstrating, or picketing in the Capitol Building on January 6, 2021. His sentencing was initially scheduled for February 25, 2022 but postponed until March 10.

In preparation for his sentencing, the United States filed a document titled, “Government’s Sentencing Memorandum” on Sunday, February 20, the day before the federal holiday, President’s Day. It asks for Jackson to serve 60 days in jail, three years of probation, obtain mental health treatment and pay a $500 fine as just punishment for his mere presence inside the Capitol building.

Imagine Jackson’s surprise when he learned of this new filing from a news personality rather than his attorney.

I spoke with Jackson and he claims his attorney wasn’t directly notified at the time of filing.

Despite the fact that this is public information, the Department of Justice’s website hasn’t updated Jackson’s case since November 30, 2021.

However, the independent site, CourtListener, produced a copy of the 43-page document that NBC’s Ryan Reilly quoted on his Twitter feed Monday morning.

It’s possible that Reilly routinely checks the document database as his Twitter profile claims that he is an  “@NBCNews Justice reporter covering DOJ et al. Writing a book on the FBI’s Jan. 6 manhunt.”

It still begs the questions: Why are they filing court documents on a Sunday and not updating the DOJ website to reflect that? Why wasn’t Jackson’s attorney immediately notified?

Upon further examination of the document, Jackson believes that it contains outright lies.

He explained to me,

“The DOJ wrote many misconceptions, lies, and speculated for 43 pages that was [sic] released to the media to run hit pieces on me.”

The document claims that Jackson wrongfully left the state; however, Jackson received express permission to attend his grandfather’s out-of-state funeral.

Jackson believes he is being further targeted for his confrontation of the FBI’s former most wanted #343, Luke Robinson.
