A Gallatin man was arrested by the Macon County Sheriff Department last week and charged with two counts each of child rape and incest. Jackie Eugene Smith was arrested on December 18 during a sex crime investigation involving several juvenile victims who were relatives of the suspect.


“The detectives, upon gathering forensic evidence and conducting numerous interviews, were able to charge Mr. Smith,” said Chief Deputy Bryan Satterfield. “The subject was arrested and brought to the Macon County Sheriff Department for booking.”


Even though Smith is currently listed as a Gallatin resident, Satterfield said that the alleged crimes occurred in Macon County. “The crime has to have occurred in Macon County in order for us to prosecute,” said Satterfield. “Either he moved or he was visiting the area when the crime occurred.”


Smith’s bond was set at $100,000. At press time, he still had not posted bond and was in custody. His court date is scheduled for January 18, 2014.
