Camp County Sheriff's Office News

PRESS RELEASE Jackson David Boyd Indicted on new Felony Charge The Camp County Sheriff’s Office has been involved in an extensive criminal investigation that began with assisting the Pittsburg Independent School District Police Department on August 21, 2018 which led to the arrest of Jackson David Boyd, 32, of Pittsburg on August 31, 2018 for the criminal offense of Sale, Distribution, or Display of Harmful Material to Minor which is a Class A Misdemeanor. A Class A Misdemeanor in Texas carries a confinement in jail up to one year and up to a $4,000.00 fine. Sheriff Alan McCandless said that Chief Deputy Chris Clark followed up on additional information and investigative leads pertaining to a separate case that eventually led to information that Boyd engaged in deviant sexual intercourse with a former Pittsburg ISD student during the time the student was enrolled at Pittsburg ISD and Boyd was employed by Pittsburg ISD. Sheriff McCandless said that upon Chief Deputy Clark completing the investigation in this particular case, the case was presented to the Camp County District Attorney’s Office and was later presented to the Grand Jury on September 27, 2018. Sheriff McCandless said that Jackson David Boyd was indicted by the Grand Jury for the criminal offense of Improper Relationship Between Educator and Student which is a 2nd Degree Felony. A second-degree felony in Texas carries a range of punishment from 2-20 years of confinement and an optional fine not to exceed $10,000. It should be noted that the two separate criminal cases involve two different victims. Chief Deputy Clark said that Boyd turned himself in to the Camp County Jail on the indictment on Friday, September 28, 2018 and was arraigned and a bond of $25,000.00 was set.

Thereafter, the animal must be vaccinated at intervals of no longer than 36 months if a 3-year vaccine is used. However, your veterinarian may prefer to use a 1-year vaccine. He/she can explain the pros and cons pertaining to which vaccine to use with your pet. Although not required by state law, there are other diseases for which your pet should be immunized annually. To safeguard your pet's and your family's health, you should visit your veterinarian at least once a year. Failure to get your animals vaccinated is a Class C misdemeanor with a fine up to $500.

On Tuesday, August 21, 2018, the Camp County Sheriff’s Office was requested to assist the Pittsburg Independent School District Police Department in a criminal investigation involving a Pittsburg ISD employee and a high school student. Sheriff Alan McCandless and Chief Deputy Chris Clark met with Pittsburg ISD Police Chief Tyrone Rogers and obtained information collected by the Pittsburg ISD Police Department to continue the criminal investigation. It was determined that in June, the Pittsburg ISD employee sent an inappropriate and offensive picture through a social media application to the Pittsburg ISD high school student. The student later reported the incident to another Pittsburg ISD employee which led to the initial investigation with the Pittsburg ISD Police Department. Upon further investigation, Chief Deputy Clark presented the case to Camp County Attorney Angela Saucier, and it was determined that there was probable cause to move forward in obtaining an arrest warrant for the offense of Sale, Distribution, or Display of Harmful Material to Minor. The elements of this particular criminal offense are a Class A Misdemeanor. On Friday, August 31, 2018, the Pittsburg ISD employee, identified as Jackson David Boyd, 32, of Pittsburg, turned himself in on the arrest warrant and was booked into the Camp County Jail. The Camp County Sheriff’s Office is still investigating other allegations related to this case.
