Brian Jackson has been a fugitive from justice connected to a child rape case out of Fall River since last May when a warrant was issued for his arrest. After an extensive investigation by members of our Massachusetts State Police Unit, information was obtained that showed the defendant was likely hiding out in the town of Goodwater, Alabama. On the evening of March 13, a state trooper from our office contacted the Coosa County Sheriff's office in Alabama in regards to this defendant. Sheriff's officers arrested the defendant in Goodwater without incident later that same night. Last Friday, the defendant waived rendition in an Alabama court and will be returned to Massachusetts to be arraigned in Fall River District Court in the coming days on charges of two counts of rape of a child, three counts of indecent assault and battery on a person under 14 and one count of assault and battery of a minor. The defendant is alleged to have repeatedly raped a young female child while he was living in Fall River. ... See MoreSee Less

Bristol County District Attorney's Most Wanted

We are very happy to announce that another fugitive from our Most Wanted List has been located and apprehended. Anthony Schmitka was tracked down yesterday in Woodstock, Vermont and arrested without incident. About a week after our Bristol County Most Wanted Fugitives page became public, Norton Police received a tip that the defendant may be hiding out in Vermont. This information was passed along to the Bristol County District Attorney's State Police Unit and the Massachusetts State Police Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section (VFAS) since both agencies had been working cooperatively for the past year to locate this defendant. Thanks to that tip, some great investigatory work and the assistance of the US Marshals, investigators were able to take this fugitive back into custody! The defendant is currently being held in custody in Vermont and will likely be transported back to Massachusetts to face the charges lodged against him here sometime next week. We would like to thank all who partnered with us on this case include VFAS, US Marshals, Norton Police and the Woodtsock, VT Police Department. ... See MoreSee Less
