Case of Interest: Jarvonne Jones

DATE: June 19, 2015

CASE: Jarvonne Jones

PROSECUTOR: Deputy District Attorney Patrick Foster, Domestic Violence Unit

District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert announced that 31-year-old Jarvonne Jones was convicted by jury of witness intimidation with personal use of a firearm, being a felon in possession of a firearm, vandalism, brandishing a firearm and resisting arrest.

Jones and the victim were in a dating relationship.  When Jones started psychologically abusing the victim, she decided to terminate their relationship.  Jones sent dozens of text messages and tried repeatedly to call her. When she did not reply, he followed the victim’s mother when she picked the victim’s children up from school. Jones screamed at the victim for not returning his phone calls.  He became enraged when he could not find a letter he knew the victim had written, blaming him if anything happened to her. He proceeded to tear up the victim’s house.

When the victim’s mother told him she was calling the police, Jones produced a firearm and held it to his side.  The victim and her mother took the children out of the house to the garage. Jones followed and vandalized the victim’s Jaguar, causing nearly $10,000 in damage. Jones fled prior to police arrival then began sending threats to the victim.  Among his threats, he told her he no longer cared about his life and knowing he was going to jail, he was going to make it “worth it.”  He stated she would have the blood of her own children and police officers on her hands.

Jones faces a maximum potential sentence of 17 years in prison.  Sentencing is set for July 10, 2015 in Department 44 before the Honorable Christopher Krueger.
