Felon awaiting sentencing racks up new charges

A city man charged with felonies for a violent domestic incident while free awaiting sentencing for drug and gun charges now faces new charges after an investigation into another violence domestic in May, city police said.

Darius L. Jones, 28, was charged with felony criminal mischief, harassment and criminal obstruction of breathing for damaging property, hitting and choking a woman at a house on Summit Street May 11.

Jones now nine charges against him since he was convicted in January of dealing drugs and possessing a loaded handgun.

He had been scheduled to be sentenced April 6 but sentencing was postponed because of COVID-19.

Jones was allowed to remain free pending sentencing.

On June 24, he was arrested and charged with felony criminal mischief, harassment, criminal obstruction of breathing, third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell, criminal trespassing and criminal use of drug paraphernalia.

He was committed to Genesee County Jail without bail and remains in jail.

For Jones, this might mean his plea deal in January could be revoked.

If that happens, he could be facing up to 15 years in prison for the weapons conviction.

Jones has at least two previous felonies for grand larceny for stealing a car and for possessing a weapon in Monroe County.
