DALLAS — Joshua William Jackson, 29, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Sam A. Lindsay to 156 months in federal prison for promoting prostitution, cyberstalking and firearms offenses, announced U.S. Attorney John Parker of the Northern District of Texas.

Jackson pleaded guilty in January 2017 to one count of use of a facility of interstate commerce in aid of a racketeering enterprise, one count of illegal receipt of a firearm by a person under indictment and one count of cyberstalking.  Jackson has been in custody since his arrest in April 2016.

            According to plea documents filed in the case, in November 2013 Jackson began promoting V.N., an eighteen-year-old female, in prostitution.  Jackson would post commercial sex advertisements on sex-based websites such as Backpage.com, and Jackson would communicate with commercial sex customers.  Jackson benefitted financially from V.N.’s commercial sex activities.  V.N. continued to engage in commercial sex acts at the direction of Jackson until November of 2015, when she terminated their relationship. 

 

            In January of 2016, V.N. moved into her parents’ home.  Shortly after she moved in with her family, Jackson began posting commercial sex advertisements on Backpage.com for V.N.  He posted such ads between January 22, 2016 and March 27, 2016, without her knowledge or permission.  These advertisements contained photos of V.N. as well as V.N.’s parents’ address and Jackson’s cell phone number.  Jackson, posing as V.N., communicated with commercial sex customers, and told them to go to her parents’ house where she would engage in commercial sex acts with them.  Multiple men went to V.N.’s parents’ house with the intent to have sex with V.N.

 

            The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and the North Texas Trafficking Taskforce investigated.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Cara Pierce prosecuted the case.
