Jackson County Sheriff’s Office deputies recently responded to a domestic assault on Duncan Mill Rd. where a man allegedly assaulted a woman and her son.

Terry Romont Harrison, 56, 1976 Duncan Mill Rd., Jefferson, allegedly attacked the woman in the garage of her residence. Harrison grabbed the woman by her throat and was holding her down on a staircase. The son said he heard a noise and ran downstairs to find Harrison choking his mother. He and his girlfriend tried to get Harrison off her, but Harrison pushed the girlfriend and hit the son in the face.

The woman ran inside when her son intervened, but Harrison caught her again and closed a door on her foot. Deputies arrived soon after and arrested Harrison for aggravated assault and simple battery.


JCSO deputies recently responded to Donahoo Rd. where a woman said a man threw a full Coca-Cola can at her before hitting her.

Justin Kyle Loggins, 20, 71 Donahoo Rd., Maysville, reportedly took the last can of Coke from the refrigerator, which started an argument between him and the woman. Loggins allegedly threw the can at the woman before hitting her. The woman had an injury on her hand.

Loggins fled the residence before deputies arrived, but they later found him. Loggins denied the assault and claimed the woman was on heroin. When asked about the woman’s hand, he claimed she tripped over a chair. He said he ran from the residence because he knew deputies would make a big deal out of the incident.

Loggins was arrested for simple battery. Warrants for his arrest out of Hall County and White County were also confirmed.


The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office recently needed the assistance of Athens-Clarke County Police Department officers in stopping a vehicle which had eluded deputies on Hwy. 129.

A deputy spotted Denard Laphael Hall, 25, 3696 Crab Apple Rd., Nicholson, driving without a functioning headlight on Hwy. 129 near the Pendergrass Flea Market. He didn’t stop and continued driving down the highway at a high rate of speed.

As Hall neared the county line with Clarke County, ACCPD officers were asked to assist. Officers set up near the county line with stop sticks and successfully stopped Hall’s vehicle. He attempted to flee the area on foot, but was tased by one officer.

A search of Hall and his vehicle revealed several concealed bags of marijuana and a hand gun. Hall is charged with driving without a license, attempting to elude officers, hold for other agency, possession of a firearm during a crime and distribution of marijuana.
