Case of Interest: Jarvonne Jones

DATE:   August 17, 2015

CASE:   Jarvonne Jones

PROSECUTOR:  Deputy District Attorney Patrick Foster, Domestic Violence Unit

District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert announced that the Honorable Christopher Krueger sentenced 31-year-old Jarvonne Jones to 18 years and 4 months in prison.  On June 18, 2015, a jury convicted Jones 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 her, 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 her mother back to the victim’s house after 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 she had written, blaming him if anything happened to her. He proceeded to tear up her 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 car, 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.
