Alan Jackson: Prosecutor

Down-Home Deputy District Attorney Alan Jackson: Prosecutor for the Phil Spector Trial

Deputy District Attorney Alan Jackson is currently preparing for the retrial of the Spector case.
Though the lengthy yet riveting case was declared a mistrial last month, it is still very much alive for Jackson, who is busy preparing for the retrial tentatively set to take place in the next six months to a year.

Jackson was not always the put-together, attention-to-detail kind of guy he seems to be now.

"In high school, I was not a very focused student, " admits Jackson. "I could always get by, but I was never very focused.Down-Home Deputy District Attorney Alan Jackson: Prosecutor for the Phil Spector Trial I knew that I needed something to help me grow up. I knew that I wanted to do something a little bit extraordinary."

When he graduated from high school in 1983, Jackson immediately joined the Air Force. He spent four years as an enlisted airman, attaining the rank of E4.Down-Home Deputy District Attorney Alan Jackson: Prosecutor for the Phil Spector Trial During these years, Jackson realized that he wanted to earn an education that reached beyond high school.

"It was almost like taking something away from somebody — you really realize how much you miss it, " Jackson says of his urge to go back to school.

During his years in the Air Force, Jackson decided that he wanted to go to college.Down-Home Deputy District Attorney Alan Jackson: Prosecutor for the Phil Spector Trial
While still in the military, Jackson tested the waters by taking a few general education courses before he plunged into college as soon as he finished serving. He enrolled as an undergraduate at the University of Texas at Austin and "jumped in, hit deep with both feet, and excelled." Discovering that his strengths lay in the liberal arts, Jackson decided to major in government.

By the time he was a junior in college, Jackson was set on going to graduate school. He had served full-time in the military and had driven hard academically for two years after that. Without any idea of what graduate study would be like and on the verge of academic burnout, Jackson knew it was time to take a break.

He decided to travel throughout Europe for about a year. After a few months, though, Jackson felt the academic bug coming on, and he enrolled in some classes in the South of France.

When Jackson returned from abroad, he dove back into academia.

"I knew about midway through college that I wanted to study law, " Jackson says.

Knowing that he'd be in Texas forever if he went to law school there, he decided to trek to either New York or California for law school.

After the Air Force and two fast-paced years in college, Jackson took off to Europe for a break.
"I decided I didn't want to spend winters in New York, so I chose California, " he says. Down-Home Deputy District Attorney Alan Jackson: Prosecutor for the Phil Spector Trial Down-Home Deputy District Attorney Alan Jackson: Prosecutor for the Phil Spector Trial

four years after the shooting of Lana Clarkson propelled Spector's name into headlines again, a standing-room-only crowd filled a courtroom to hear opening statements in the record producer's murder trial.
"The evidence is going to paint a picture of a man who on February 3, 2003, put a loaded pistol in Lana Clarkson's mouth - inside her mouth - and shot her to death," said Deputy District Attorney Alan Jackson
