Taking the Stand

In an upcoming episode of A&E’s “Taking the Stand,” viewers will be thrust into a gripping legal drama as they follow the trial of Zachary Wester, a former sheriff deputy from Jackson County, Florida. The episode is set to air on Thursday, February 1, 2024 at 9:01 PM.

Wester stood accused of a shocking crime—planting drugs on unsuspecting motorists during routine traffic stops. Charges included racketeering, official misconduct, fabricating evidence, and false imprisonment.

The allegations against Wester shook the community and ignited widespread outrage. As details emerged about his actions during his time with the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office from 2016 to 2018, it became clear that he had abused his position and breached the public’s trust in an egregious manner.

Multiple innocent individuals fell victim to Wester’s deception before their lives were turned upside down by false drug-related charges. These victims have since been awarded nearly $1 million in a federal court settlement—a testament to both their suffering and the severity of Wester’s crimes.

Wester was sentenced to twelve and a half years in prison for his offenses—an outcome that provided some measure of justice for those whose lives he had unjustly impacted. He is currently serving his sentence at Saguaro Correctional Center located in Arizona—a facility chosen as part of efforts to protect him due to concerns over potential backlash from fellow inmates or members of society who are aware of his actions.

Mark your calendars for Thursday, February 1st, 2024 at 9:01 PM as A&E delivers an engrossing episode that delves deep into Zachary Wester’s trial in “Taking the Stand.”
