A girl, now 15, told her family members in December 2020 that Jones had been sexually assaulting her, according to Greg Flannagan, Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office spokesman.

She said that Jones, who is known to the family, assaulted her between February 2014 and December 2019, Flannagan said.

The allegations were investigated by the Moraine Police Department.

An arrest warrant was issued for Jones following his indictment. He was taken into custody Tuesday evening and booked in the Montgomery County Jail.
