Man rapes woman to get into jail to go after his son’s killer

Rapists don’t generally call 9-1-1 on themselves, but that is exactly what Joel Jones did after viciously attacking a woman at knifepoint. After the rape, Jones told the victim that he did it to get put back in jail so that he could get at those who shot and killed his 14-year old son.

He met the victim when she answered a Craigslist ad to work for his cleaning company. He lured her to an office building with the ruse of her getting the job, and when she got there, he raped her at knifepoint.

This is not the first time Jones has been in prison. According to the Florida Department of Corrections, he was convicted for sexual battery and burglary as well as second degree murder.

On Thursday, he was convicted and sentenced to 25 years for armed sexual battery. He will not be eligible for parole or early release until then. Considering he is 49 years old now, chances are good he will never see the light of day again.

“This case is not really about what someone did to your child, but what you did to someone else’s child,” the judge told Jones. “The things that you did to her were completely beyond the realm of what a human being should do to another human being.”
