Former Clerk Otis Jackson Claims to be Sovereign Citizen
I see more people every year claiming to be a sovereign citizen. They are under the mistaken belief that this will prevent prosecution. They think this claim prevents the court from having jurisdiction over their case. If you walk on a sidewalk, get government assistance, vote, pay a sales tax or avail yourself of anything that is in America, you are not a sovereign citizen. You can and will be prosecuted. Asserting sovereign citizen status will only damage your case and possibly land you in jail for contempt. If facing criminal charges, you should hire a qualified attorney.
