Mesa, Arizona — We first reported on Brandon Jones back in April of last year after he was charged with videotaping himself sexually abusing children. Last Thursday, he was sentenced to 35 years in prison.
Jones was initially charged with sexually abusing a 5-year-old boy, but then later had additional counts added after investigators found video on his laptop of him molesting the 5-year-old boy, a 4-year-old girl and a 1-year-old girl.
Police determined both girls were being cared for by Jones’ sister while he was living with her. Jones told police that he was making the videos as a favor to a friend of his in Boston.
Jones was charged with 27 counts of child molestation, but only pleaded guilty to one count of child molestation and four amended counts of attempted molestation.
In addition to the 35 years in prison, he is expected to serve 15 years and a life time of probation after serving his sentence.Tags: Arizona, Brandon Jones, Child Molestation, Crime, Pedophile, Sexual Assault
