Dover man sentenced to a decade in prison after sex abuse conviction

DOVER, Del. - Officials say that a 48-year-old Dover man will spend 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to first degree sexual abuse of a child by a person of trust, endangering the welfare of a child and third degree child abuse.

A deputy attorney general secured the plea and sentence from David Jones. In October 2016, Jones sexually abused a child that was in his care.

After pleading guilty in Superior Court, a judge sentenced Jones to 10 years in prison, followed by one year of either work release or home confinement, then three years of probation.

Jones must also register as a tier three sex offender.
