Albany-- A man said to be Americus' most notorious drug dealer is in federal court this week.

32-year-old Roger Lee Jackson the third, known as "Jack Daddy", is charged with distribution of crack cocaine. His trial began Monday morning in U.S. District Court in Albany.

Investigators say when Jackson was first arrested last summer, friends threw "Free Jack Daddy" parties, selling T-shirts and hats to bail him out. Opening statements were given today.

The trial is expected to last all week.
