Jones pleads not guilty to charges of rape and sodomy. Jones is charged with assaulting two women, who were able to identify him as the assailant. Jones’s attorney, Scott Cox:
We believe this gentleman is innocent and he’s been falsely accused, and he’s going to be found not guilty. We understand there’s video potentially in the hallway of the building where this allegedly occurred; also video out in the parking lot. We believe those videos will be exculpatory to Mr. Jones.
Green deletes his Twitter account after he posts tweets relating to a recent court case where he pleaded no contest to supplying ecstasy to a woman.
People who have really been raped REMEMBER!!! and If someone is passed out they’re not even WITH you consciously! so WITH Implies consent.
Later he tweets:
Let me 1st praise god for exoneration fairness & freedom! Secondly I sincerely apologize for my comments being taken so far out of context. I only intended on a healthy exchange to help heal those who love me from the pain I had already caused from this. Please forgive me as it was your support that got me thru this to begin with. I’d never condone the harm of any women. Thank you.
