Former police officer pleads guilty following incident in Newmarket

A former police officer from Suffolk Constabulary has appeared in court and pleaded guilty to two offences.

Daniel Jackson, of Lakenheath, appeared at Norwich Crown Court today (Friday, September 11) to face two charges – misconduct in a public office and perverting the course of justice.

It follows an incident on October 20, 2019, where another man was detained for possession of drugs in Newmarket.

Following a police interview on April 8 this year, the 28-year-old was summonsed to Norwich Magistrates Court on August 14, 2020, for an initial hearing.

Jackson resigned from the force in July and following his guilty plea the case has been adjourned for pre-sentence reports until Friday, October 2.
