Jeffrey Jackson pleads “no contest” in connection to deadly crash


A Niles, Mich., man pleaded “no contest” on Thursday to charges connected to a crash that killed a 16-year-old girl in Edwardsburg, Mich., a few months ago.

Jeffrey Jackson pleaded “no contest” to a moving violation causing death and a moving violating causing serious injury, WNDU reported.

Police said Jackson was speeding and ran a stop sign when his vehicle collided with another vehicle at the intersection of Daily and Pine Lake roads in May.

Makayla McKenzie, the 16-year-old girl driving the other vehicle, died in the crash. A 17-year-old girl in McKenzie’s vehicle suffered a broken jaw.

Michigan treats “no contest” pleas like guilty pleas. Jackson is expected to be sentenced July 28.
