In April of this year, 21-year-old Alyssa D. Jones pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting the underage brothers of her boyfriend. Jones, who lives in Bay City, pleaded guilty to two counts of assault with intent to commit sexual penetration. She was scheduled to be sentenced on Monday, May 13. The sentencing hearing has now been rescheduled for Monday, June 3 after Jones decided to change defense attorneys.
The defendant was initially charged with two counts of second-degree criminal sexual conduct and four counts of third-degree CSC with a person between the ages of 13 and 15. Prosecutors dismissed these charges in exchange for Jones’ pleas.
According to a news report at Mlive.com, Jones’ boyfriend, who was 17 years old, lived with his mother and two brothers who were 14 and 15 years old. On October 1 Bay City police were called to the home after receiving a report of domestic violence. Jones and her boyfriend were involved in an altercation after she allegedly told her boyfriend that she had sex with his 15-year-old brother, according to what police were told by the boys’ mother. She also said that the 15-year-old had a hickey on his neck, and that Jones admitted she was responsible.
The younger siblings arrived at the home while police were on the scene. It was at this point that the 14-year-old revealed to his mother that he had also engaged in sexual activity with Jones recently. Court records indicate that the boys’ mother requested Jones be arrested by police.
Both of the younger boys were interviewed in late October by staff at the Nathan Weidner Children’s Advocacy Center, and claimed that on the same day, both had sex with the defendant at their home.
Assault with intent to commit sexual penetration is a 10-year felony offense. Michigan sex crime lawyers know that not only may the defendant in this case spend substantial time behind bars, she may also be required to register as a sex offender, punishment which will no doubt affect her ability to secure employment and negatively impact other areas of her life.
