West Jefferson attorney disbarred after installing camera in bathroom

Attorney: Andrew Craig Jackson Jr.

Location: West Jefferson

Bar membership: Member since 2010

Disciplinary action: Disbarred on Oct. 28

Background: While Jackson’s law license was suspended, he installed a video camera in the bathroom of his law office for the purpose of secretly recording individuals using the bathroom without their knowledge or consent. He has been charged with two felony offenses in connection with this conduct. (According to court records, Jackson was arrested Oct. 15 and charged with two counts of secretly using or installing a photographic device in order to gratify sexual desire.) Jackson surrendered his law license voluntarily, acknowledging that the facts upon which his convictions were based are true, and if disciplinary charges were predicated on the misconduct he could not successfully defend against them.

Previous discipline: Jackson was suspended from the practice of law for three years in January 2017 for failing to properly supervise a paralegal who misappropriated client funds.
