Washington County man accused of homicide in more trouble
A Washington County man awaiting trial on vehicular homicide charges was arrested Friday after selling heroin to undercover police officers, District Attorney Eugene Vittone said.
Jordan Jacobson, 20, of McDonald sold marijuana to undercover officers several times over the span of 10 days, Vittone said. Once, Jacobson used a child to deliver marijuana to an undercover officer. He is in jail on a $250,000 bond.
Jacobson was charged in January with being under the influence of drugs when he crashed his car on July 27, 2013, killing two of his passengers and injuring a third. He was released from jail after posting a $100,000 bond.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
