New England Patriots cornerback Jack Jones has been apprehended at Logan Airport in Massachusetts, following the discovery of two loaded firearms in his carry-on bag. Attorney Michael McCann has expressed grave concerns about the situation, stating that Jones is facing multiple serious charges, including possession of a high-capacity magazine.
“Jones is in a lot of trouble. he’s in a lot of trouble because he’s facing multiple offenses and they’re serious offenses, including a large-capacity feeding device… There’s a lot of stuff that he’s been charged with. Certainly from what we know he’s facing serious charges that carry potential time in prison. That has to be very worrisome for him beyond how this will affect his career with the patriots and his eligibility to play in the NFL…” McCann said on NBC sports Boston.
According to an interview on NBC Sports Boston, Jack Jones’ future with the Patriots and his eligibility in the NFL are in jeopardy due to the charges against him. The Transportation Security Administration discovered guns in Jones’ carry-on bag during a routine X-ray screening at the State Police-Logan Airport Barracks, leading to his arrest. He was granted bail set at $50,000.
If convicted on all charges, Jack Jones could face severe legal consequences, including a maximum prison sentence of 30 years. It’s important to note that consecutive convictions may result in an even lengthier sentence. Notably, Jones has a prior arrest in 2018 for commercial burglary, which resulted in a guilty plea and 45 days of house arrest.
The Patriots spokesperson briefly acknowledged Jones’ arrest and stated that further comments would be made once more information is gathered.
