Clifford Jones has had enough. As a pastor he finds it inconvenient to wear the title of registered sex offender. 11 years have passed, now he wants to change his plea. Let's not forget he was convicted of having oral sex with a 15 year old girl. I hope the judge says no.
NORWALK, Ohio (AP) - The attorney for a minister convicted of a child sex charge 11 years ago says he wants to withdraw his plea. Clifton Jones Senior, a registered sex offender and bishop of Agape Love Ministries in Sandusky, entered an Alford plea, which means he did not admit committing a crime but conceded prosecutors had enough evidence to convict him. The case against 51-year-old involved a 1995 incident in which a 15-year-old girl told police she had consensual oral sex with the pastor in a Norwalk hotel room. He was convicted of attempted corruption of a minor. But a motion filed Friday in Huron County Common Please Court says there were problems with the case, including prosecutors who failed to present the court with a sworn statement by the girl.
