Unfortunately, the former English teacher wasn’t as good at sliding a razor across his neck as he was sliding his dick into some teen poonanny, as he only suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
Jones was on trial after he was accused of sexually assaulting a teen relative of his live-in girlfriend. According to prosecutors, Jones had sex with the girl in 2013 but started molesting her in 2012.
After raping her twice, the Orange County district attorney’s office say he told the victim he “would ruin her life if she told anyone what he was doing.” She would eventually tell a friend’s mother and Jones would be arrested within a month.
Despite Jones’ DNA being found on the girl, his defense attorney maintained the victim was “concocting a story” because she was smoking marijuana and trying to hide it.
Jurors sided with the prosecution and found Jones guilty of two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child and one count of continuous sexual abuse.
After learning he was now facing a possible life behind bars, the 56-year-old pulled a razor out of his pocket and slashed his throat.
“Right after the judge asked if we wanted jurors polled, both attorneys said no, and then he took a razor out of his left pocket and slashed his throat,” Senior Deputy District Attorney Heather Brown said. “His head hit the table and I thought he fainted, but then I saw the blood and the razor on the table.”
Jones was rushed to the hospital and is expected to recover. He’s due back in court in November for his sentencing.
If he truly wanted to kill himself in court, he should’ve followed in the footsteps of William Moore and Steve Parsons. They also weren’t happy about being found guilty of sexually assaulting children, and died in the courtroom after ingesting cyanide.
As for the victim, she was accused of framing Jones by his girlfriend, then placed in a youth shelter. She would later live in various places, including a county facility, several foster homes, and the streets.Tags: Attempted Suicide, California, Crime, Jeffrey Jones, Rape, Sexual Assault, teen
