TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- It had been weeks since anyone had heard from Sherry P. Jackson, the former IRS agent who studied federal income tax history and law, and transformed into an outspoken anti-income tax activist. But under the federal government’s relatively new “tax-defier” program, she was essentially convicted and imprisoned for her beliefs, her supporters believe.

Sherry’s last known contact with family from prison had been Dec.17, 2009. The 47-year-old mother of two said that she had experienced strange health problems in prison before contact was lost; therefore her husband of 22 years, Colin, was especially concerned for Sherry when he hadn’t heard from her.

But Colin was happy to inform this reporter that he finally heard from Sherry on the evening of Jan. 6. During the holidays the well-known words “silent night” took on a whole new meaning for Colin.

“The cruelty of this type of activity to Sherry and her family, especially at Christmastime, [was] beyond comprehension and despicable,” a friend recently wrote in a letter to AMERICAN FREE PRESS during the holiday “freeze” on Sherry’s phone calls.

Meanwhile, Sherry was quietly moved from the Coleman, Fla. prison to another federal pen near Tallahassee, the capital of Florida.

Colin understands that federal officials moved her because she “may” have contacted the press, which could violate a gag order in terms of media. But observers close to her maintain she did not contact the press.

Sherry Jackson, whose inmate number is 59085-019, is now at the Federal Correction Institution (FCI) in Tallahassee. Her projected release is Aug. 8, 2011. Tune in to RBN on Saturday to learn much more. To contact the host email truthhound2@yahoo.com
