Who did he vote for? #191

Meet Jackson Dempsey.

Why is Jackson in the news?

A psychiatrist pleaded guilty Wednesday and was sentenced to 30 days in jail for planting booby traps that injured Oregon mountain bikers riding down national forest trails outside Ashland.

After pleading guilty to assault and reckless endangering, Dr. Jackson Dempsey apologized to the mountain bikers, his family and the mental health community in Jackson County Circuit Court in Medford. But he did not explain what led him to string nylon cords across the trails, and put nails and small trees in the path.

Besides the 30 days in jail, Judge Lorenzo Mejia ordered Dempsey to stay away from national forest trails for the two years he is on probation.

"That was an important piece" of the plea agreement, said Deputy District Attorney Alisa Ray. "It was a good resolution that met the needs of the cycling community."

Dempsey has until May 20 to report to jail.

Sounds like a tea partier to me.

None the less. Did this JO vote for Obama or Romney in the last election?
