JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The son of a Region 8 mayor is serving 6 years of probation after pleading guilty to attempted computer exploitation of a child.
Prosecuting Attorney Scott Ellington said earlier this summer, Shannon Jones, the son of Brookland Mayor Kenneth Jones, took that plea.
That plea is a felony.
Jones has already served 70 days in jail for the crime.
He was arrested in March of 2013 for trying to solicit sex online from what he thought was a 15 year-old boy.
That 15 year-old boy turned out to be a police officer.
