GBI arrests Jackson Co. sheriff’s deputy

The GBI has arrested and charged Jackson County Sheriff’s Deputy Zachary Billings with criminal trespass and violation of oath of office.

The charges, the GBI says, grew out of an incident last Sunday which the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office asked the GBI to investigate.

Billings is alleged to have entered a home off Lakeview Terrace in Jefferson without permission at the time.

He turned himself in without incident and was booked at the Jackson County Jail.
