A former Maury County deputy will be re-tried next year for soliciting sex from a minor online after his trial ended in a hung jury last week. 39-year-old Jackie Wayne Sands of South Cedar Lane in Pulaski remains free on $15,000 bond until his new trial. After deliberating just over two hours following the one-day trial in Dickson County Circuit Court Tuesday, the jury reported it was deadlocked 10-2 in favor of convicting Sands on a single count of solicitation of a minor. Sands was arrested in December at the Maury County Sheriff’s Office, where he had worked as a deputy since 2009. He was indicted in Dickson County following an undercover online investigation by the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. Det. Scott Levasseur testified that Sands communicated online Dec. 2-11 with the detective who was posing as an underage female. After the jury reported it was deadlocked, Judge Robert Burch declared a mistrial. Assistant District Attorney Billy Miller said the state plans to proceed with another trial for Sands and it has been scheduled for Feb. 18. If convicted of the Class E felony, Sands faces 1-6 years in jail and up to a $3,000 fine.
