Update December 12, 2011
Hours after pleading not guilty in the stolen rodeo horses case Jaci Rae Jackson posted bond. However, she remains behind bars in Columbia County’s Detention Center. She now has to face additional charges in Oklahoma.
Jackson is scheduled to go before a judge for her extradition hearing on Monday according to Sergeant Donald Wray, although he says it could get pushed up to tomorrow. If Jackson doesn’t fight her extradition, Oklahoma authorities will have ten days to retrieve her. She is charged with three felonies in Oklahoma – moving stolen property into the state, knowingly concealing stolen property, and animal cruelty.
Investigators say Jackson could also face Federal charges in the case.
