The case dates back to December of 2016 when Lafayette Police Department officers responded to an online ad for sexual activity with a woman at a hotel.

The victim told police Jones and another man set up her meetings with clients, four to five times a week.
She says they took all the money and threatened to hurt her family if she refused to work.
