Joe Jackson’s business partner for his new record label is a convicted felon.
Marshall Thompson, who Joe shamelessly introduced during a news conference a few days after Michael’s death, served 366 days in federal prison back in 2001 after pleading guilty to two counts of conspiracy to commit extortion in Illinois.
Thompson who is a retired cop, conspired with active duty officers to sell police badges to various businessmen for $1,000 to $2,500 a piece.
According to federal documnets, the businessmen bought the badges so they could get the perks of being a cop, such as carrying a concealed weapon, parking in restricted areas and “receiving discounts for goods and services”.
