JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KMIZ)
An 18-year-old man was arrested at Jefferson City High School on Thursday on suspicion of being a fugitive out of Virginia.
Terry L. Jones III was arrested at the Jefferson City High School campus after a school resource officer was made aware of the outstanding warrant, said Jefferson City Police Department Lt. David Williams.
Jones was charged with producing a minor for obscene material by communications and enticing a minor to perform porn out of Powhatan County, Virginia, according to court documents.
Information on why Jones was suspected of such crimes in Virginia or why he was on Jefferson City School District property was not immediately available. JCSD spokesperson Ryan Burns did not respond to multiple requests for comment on Friday.
Jones was in the Cole County Jail on Friday and waiting to be extradited.
Powhatan Commonwealth Attorney Gretchen Brown told ABC 17 News that she could not release many details of the case. She said the two charges, which allegedly occurred in August 2019, are both felonies in Virginia. Brown said she planned on trying Jones as an adult.
