This blog is counting down the days until Nitelen Jackson voluntarily goes to jail. I am posting information about Jackson each of those days.
Day One, Nitelen passes paternity test AND THE CROWD GOES WILD.
This is Day Two of the promised count down and of course readers would like to know, "Why is Nitelen going to jail? What are the specifics of the theft charge?"
I'm glad you asked...
I HAVE IN MY POSSESSION a copy of the criminal complaint describing what Nitelen Jackson did to earn those 45 days. Also I should mention, based on my reading of the online MNCIS record, it appears that by serving those 45 days Nitelen won't have probation. He just "takes the time like a man," goes away for a while, and has friends snap more cool jailhouse pics like the one below.

Nitelen is on the left. The guy to the right is identified on Facebook as "Cali."
Note Nitelen's distinctive neck tattoo, which is a helpful way to identify him. The tattoo says RIP PUDDA. Here is a picture where you can see the tattoo better.
Same as previous photo
"Pudda" refers to DeCari Antonio Starr, whose murder is still unsolved. In a future blog post, I will show Nitelen and friends having a boozy little wake at the grave of DeCari Antonio Starr.
Oh, yes, but about that criminal complaint! Here it is:
Nitelen Dereese Jackson
4022 Bryant Ave. N.
(Complainant is Mark Melander, a police officer in Edina, Minnesota)
On 22 March 2012 NITELEN DEREESE JACKSON, defendant herein, entered the Macy's department store located at Southdale Center in Edina, Hennepin County, Minnesota. An unidentified male accompanied defendant. Defendant and the unidentified male selected 20 items of Ralph Lauren clothing worth $1545.50 and placed the items in separate piles.
Defendant and the unidentified male exited and then reentered the store, adding more clothing to the piles each time they reentered the store. Eventually, defendant and the unidentified male took the clothing and ran from the store where they entered a waiting vehicle and fled from the mall area. This incident was captured by store surveillance video.
Macy's loss prevention agent M.P., who observed the theft, subsequently viewed a photographic array containing defendant's photograph and positively identified defendant as one of the two individuals who took the clothing.
(The criminal complaint then notes:)
The defendant's whereabouts are unknown.
