Fort Bend County is one of the fastest growing counties in the United States.

Fort Bend County is located in the heart of the Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown metropolitan area which is considered the 6th largest metropolitan area in the United States.
Recently in Fort Bend two residents were sentenced to life imprisonment within one week. One of those convicted is Michael Jackson, a life long resident of Fort Bend. Mr. Jackson was convicted of shooting a 15 year old twice while the boy was walking to a store. After shooting the teenager Mr. Jackson called one of his friends to pick him up and confessed what he had done. Bravely, Mr. Jackson’s friend convinced Jackson to stay in the Houston area and called the police to inform them of the situation. He had to hide from Jackson when making the phone call while making sure Jackson did not flee. Mr. Jackson said he murdered the teen because he apparently thought the teen had broken into his car.
