Proceedings continued in reckless homicide case

Attorneys requested more time to discuss a possible resolution in the reckless homicide case against Robert Jackson Wednesday in Christian Circuit Court.

Olivia Adams represents Jackson and informed the court she needs more time to discuss with her client about either settling the case or setting it for trial, so Judge Andrew Self set another pretrial hearing for October 5.  Judge Self did take a moment to admonish Jackson on making sure he’s following all the conditions of his pretrial release to the letter.

It was also decided that the bond related to Jackson’s misdemeanor charges will be released.

Jackson was traveling south on Princeton Road about three and a half miles north of the Eagle Way Bypass in Christian County on December 23, 2019 when he crossed the center line and collided head-on with a vehicle driven by 32-year-old Misty Quarles of Cerulean. Quarles’ pickup then went over a bridge and onto a creek bed.

Quarles and a passenger, 11-year-old Alexia Trump, died from their injuries. Two other passengers, 34-year-old Marcus Quarles and a juvenile, were seriously injured and flown to Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

Jackson was also injured and was taken to an area hospital.
