LOWNDES COUNTY, GA – A former Lowndes County deputy has plead guilty to running a traffic ticket scam that targeted Hispanic drivers.

Jason Stacks pleaded guilty to conspiracy. Prosecutors say Stacks admitted to making unlawful traffic stops during his time as a Lowndes County deputy.

Stacks told Hispanic drivers they could face an arrest or deportation if they did not pay him off.

According to authorities, in August Stacks unlawfully detained four drivers. One driver was unable to provide the $500 requested so Stacks along with his two conspirators, drove to the victim’s home and took $300 in cash from the victim.

Stacks was arrested in 2013 along with Miguel Reyes and Gloria Gallego whom prosecutors say acted as Stacks Spanish-speaking co-conspirators.

Right now there is no word on when Stacks will be sentenced.
