Everybody thought Jerry Sandusky was a stand up guy to. One word for Jay's defenders: naive. Don't kid yourselves, his wife is well aware that he is capable of this. She's embarrassed and humiliated and trying to spare her family more pain.

I am a Carroll County graduate, Jay was there when I got to high school.. This is NOT his first time doing this, I am sure it wont be his last. I have witnessed him in the act several times, whether it's making out with high school girls, or having sex. This poor girl decides to come put with what kind of person he really is and she is getting treated like this? What kind of message is this sending to our young ladies today? For the girls in high school harassing her, one day you're going to look back on this and feel ashamed for how you have acted, and the adults here who have treated her so unkind, well you should know better, I am embarrassed for you all really. She is a beautiful young lady, if she has issues well that's her problem, who the hell doesn't? If your marriage has come to this, an adult man with 2 children,who is cheating on his wife, well I think they clearly do not mean that much to him if he is willing to risk it on an "innocent" high school crush. Makes me sick really, what a work of art. It honestly makes me sick. ALSO, for the idiots on here saying he doesn't have to make anyone do anything cause he is "good looking" lol wow, he is far from it, he is ugly inside and out, always has been. HE SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF HIMSELF. YOU CAN'T PLAY WITH FIRE FOREVER JAY, YOU WERE BOUND TO GET CAUGHT AS MANY TIMES AS YOU HAVE DONE THIS!

Really? So you witnessed sever actions
Including sex and you never reported this? Hmm if I caught any teacher having sex with a student I would have reported that. And I think it silly Jay would have done something whatever that something may be to a student of a teacher he works with.

There are cameras inside CCHS. Perhaps this teacher was seen on camera touching this girl. Predators beware!

jay had nothing to fear Daddy always took care of his affairs with school employees and he did the same for his son with students. When you have board members and central office behind you it has been really easy to do whatever you felt like. Daddy Jones problem was that as Board members changed and central office his influence became smaller and smaller. I am sure he is shocked that anyone would dare call the authorities without asking him first. Daddy Jones was an asshole and so is his predator son.

Who p*ssed in your Wheaties? I'm from Carrollton and these people make us look like idiots. If you want to call some little girl horrible names and drag Jay's name through the mud, then have the common courtesy to do so in a fashion the rest of us can understand.

Kentucky State Police arrested a Carroll County High School teacher for allegedly having sexual contact with a student.

Through investigation, it was determined that John F. Jones IV (known as ‘Jay Jones’), 32, is alleged to have inappropriately touched a 16-year-old female student while in school, according to a KSP news release.

Jones, a native of Carrollton, was arrested at 9:32 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 15 in front of his parents’ house on Sixth Street in Carrollton, KSP Post 5 Public Affairs Officer Trooper Michael Webb said. Jones was charged with two counts of sexual abuse first degree and was taken to the Carroll County Detention Center.

Jones is a math teacher who also coaches girls golf, boys middle school basketball and high school baseball.

Carroll County Schools attorney James Crawford said late Tuesday that in accordance with school board policy, Jones has been placed on administrative leave pending a complete investigation of the matter. Once that is complete, the schools superintendent will decide how the matter will be handled.

“The school system is doing everything it can in a situation like this,” Crawford said.

He said when a complaint such as this is made, police are notified. The school system will also conduct its own investigation to allow it to make an informed decision once this is complete, he explained.

Webb said this is a position of trust law charge. He said in the state of Kentucky, individuals 16 years old and older are considered consenting adults. However, according to KRS 510.110, a person is charged with sexual abuse first degree when they are in a position of authority or a position of special trust over a minor who is less than 18 years old.

“A teacher cannot have any kind of sexual contact or relations with a student, whether they are a willing participant or not,” Webb said.

Detective Sergeant Todd Harwood leads the ongoing investigation

If he did this,,,not saying he did or didn't,,,then he should never be allowed around children unsupervised again!!! My son was in his class and he said he only heard about it through other students...

You only "think" you're smart when, in reality, you look rediculous. But that's OK. You're in good company here. The expectations are pretty low, which I'm sure you're used to.

I have always thought that it was horrible that the Carroll schools would have 23 yeard olds teaching 17 year olds. Gues it caught up with them.
Are you saying a recent college graduate who.has worked tirelessly for four years to complete their college education, pass several standardized tests and spend thousands of dollars to become a "certified" teacher does not deserve a job based on their age alone? Please do not stereotype 23 year old teachers, I know many who are hard working and mature enough to make great positive influences on their students!
