Thomas A. Jones

On December 30, 2011 the Defendant was seen running up stairs at the Warren Correctional Institution following another inmate. He was swinging a weapon that he had fashioned from tying a padlock on a shoe string. Corrections Officer’s intervened and ordered him to the wall. Later, he admitted that it was his intention to strike the other inmate with the home made weapon. He was convicted in our county of Possession of a Deadly Weapon While Under Detention, a felony of the fourth degree and received a six month sentence, to be served consecutive to his prior sentences. Inmate Thomas has a long history of violent criminal activity, including prior convictions for Rape and Robbery, drug offenses, theft offenses, failure to register as a sexual offender and related cases. Although in this case, he was only sentenced to an additional six months in prison, it is clear that he is a habitual, violent offender whose release will endanger the citizens of this state whenever he is released.
