Jones is sued for sexual assault by former exotic dancer Jana Weckerly. The lawsuit alleges that Jones forced himself on Weckerly without Weckerly’s consent in 2009. Jones’ attorney Levi McCathern:
These allegations are completely false. The legal complaint is unsupported by facts or evidence of any kind. This is nothing more than an attempt to embarrass and extort Jerry Jones. This is a shakedown by a lawyer who is a solo practitioner just trying to make a name for himself. The alleged incidents would have been more than five years old. We intend to vigorously contest this complaint and expect it will be shown for what it is — a money grab. Due to the seriousness of these baseless allegations, we have also involved law enforcement.
