That's how it works in Dickson County. There is so much corruption and it's a shame that a judge could be so corrupt. I'm sure I know which judge is it. Probably drunk at the time... We just settled a ridiculous case with his daughter. It was a set up from the beginning. I pray for this lady cause I know how hard it can be to fight something that just doesn't seem like it's possible. I have hope that Karma will get these people.

I was going to post a recent article written to the editor of the local newspaper but I see someone already has. Thank you. This is just one case out of many and it is sad what these people have done to so many families. So many suffer bc of this and the most important and ridiculous part is that the children suffer the most. The damage this group of people has caused can not be reversed or undone. My child has forever been changed bc of the ridiculous decisions made by Andy Jackson and his little crew of cronies. It bothers me everyday to know that the decision I made to get her deadbeat sperm donor to help me take care of her has forever changed who she is and the little girl I once had is gone. She is very angry and tells me that she is mad at me on the days she goes to his house bc I have to take her there. She does not understand. She is starting to ask questions and I have no answers so when she asked me questions, I tell her to ask him when he picks her up. That is the only thing I can come up with. After all, he is the one who did this to her so I feel like he should be the one to explain it. Have you read the article posted above? If so, what do you think about it?

I just have a question,first a comment, my daughter went through the system. All I have to say is there was a girl there that was caught smoking weed in the bathroom when we were there and got the same punishment as my daughter and the only commented on how cute she was,and how much of a future she had ahead of her. And they found a so called roach in her car at school. Now the question my daughter will be 18 in a few weeks can she get her license back? Can anyone help?

I have been gone for some time but for now I'm back. It has been a long time and I have forgot nothing about this asshole. I will have to say the case I was involvced in has went south and not all of the problem has been Andy. Mom has got out and showed her ass and I suppose she decided since they were going to take her kids she would do all they have accused her of and this makes her look bad and those that have stood up for her. The way I see it is, thats still no excuse for Andy breaking the law and favoring and taking payoffs along with Kirt vandivort for ruling in my brothers favor in the first place. Andy still needs to anwser and pay for the lives he has ruined. It dont seem that the politicians want to do much please remember this in your elections.
We received no support from David Shepard or Jim Summerville, No support from The Court of Judiciary so throw your support toward disbanning this worthless committee they cant do anything according to their own words. Support Senator Beavers bill on revamping the Judiciary committee.
Most of all 2014 dont vote for Andy and lets find a good opponent to run againist him. I have one in my mind it will take some cohersing but might be done. Micheal Miess was a teacher in Dickson for 2 decades and his wife longer than that he left about 5 years ago because he received his bar license in the state of TN a great fit for the job. Think about this and spill your thoughts and I will get them to him.

This is his last term. Jack Garton will be the next juvenile court judge.

Jack will only be the next judge if the people of Dickson elect him. I do believe that is a good possiblity because the people in Dickson County seem to like a good screwing. However if everybody on this site that has voted would get out and vote in the next election it would be enough to sway from the shitty boys and I do mean boys their is nothing about them that is a man.

Judge Jackson has already said he is going to have the county commission appoint him and you know as well as anyone whoever the higher ups of this town want as judge is who will be.

Thanks just venting for that tid bit of information I suppose that everybody needs to be working on this. But if I remember correctly when they appointed Andy to this position it was to be an elected seat after that. I'm not sure how that could be changed but anything isd possible in this county. For now I believe we need to stay on top of this and be calling your commissioners every week if you have to because they dont want to loose their positions either. They may have to be replaced I dont know how many would be Andy supporters but maybe we should start calling and asking now and see what each has to say about appointing the next juvenile judge.
You know you would think that Jack would get tired of being Andy's ass wipe!!!!

This is so ridiculous and so unfair to all the citizens that didn't vote for this ass or the ones not kissing his ass. I have no idea why the news media wont do more to help us and especially The Dickson Herald its a shame but what I do know is he will pay someday Karma is a BITCH!!!!!!!!!! And for the people who is friends with him or using him to get what they want in his court room will pay as well starting with my family too.

Garton is definitely Jackson's boy. Don't trust anything that man says and be wary of him for sure. He isn't a competent atty., he's not that smart and tries to act like a bully. It doesn't matter if he is competent or not because he is in Dickson County with Daddy Andy.

You surely already knew that. If people don't keep this story loud and clear to the public he will be the next Judge over your children and probate court. People in Dickson County better stay on top of this and be willing to speak out their concerns about Andy, Jack several others that s possible to take the bench. I don't know if he's interested but Vandivort and Holley as well as several others will be bad choices. As a matter of fact I could only think of maybe two or three in Dickson Co that has enough sense to do this job so sad. Dickson County and every city in it is so corrupt they are on the news every night with lawless leaders and crime.

There's a better choice for Dickson County Juvenile & Probiate Judge; Michael Meise. Please share his Facebook page with your friends and family and vote for Meise on Aug 7.
