Controversies

Jones has always been in the limelight for misbehaving with women. According to his report by Atlanta Journal-Constitution, “Jones has a long history of problematic behaviour toward women, repeatedly accused of threatening, intimidating and harassing women in his personal and professional lives” over three decades.

In June 1989, three years before his election to the state legislature, Jones who was then 28 years old then, was imprisoned on a charge of pointing a pistol at a woman in her home in Doraville. His criminal charges were dismissed, and he was ordered to attend anger management classes to get control over his anger.

In 2004, DeKalb County Commissioner Elaine Boyer made a complaint to Decatur police that Jones “deliberately walked into her and made hard shoulder-to-shoulder contact” after a fervent public conference; she did not put any charges against Jones, but accused him of verbally and also abused commissioners and staff making “derogatory and degrading comments.”

In 2004, Jones was also charged with the rape of numerous women during a late-night party at her home in December. The police chief of DeKalb informed Jones of the allegation before the detectives could take her statement.  A Georgia Attorney General’s Office investigation inferred that the chief’s call was inappropriate. In 2005 the name of the woman was leaked to the media, therefore the woman declined to press charges. Jones was not charged with any case and the allegation did not cause him much substantial political damage.

In 2003, Jones was investigated by a grand jury for his security detail, which cost $800,000 a year. The cost of the detail far exceeded other county officials. It was found in an investigation by a grand jury that Jones’ five-officer protective detail was “a very expensive decoration” but not illegal.
