Russell County man convicted on all counts

Vincent Bernard Jones was convicted on all counts this afternoon.

Jones, 44, was charged with first-degree rape, first-degree sodomy, first-degree sexual abuse and incest, said Russell County District Attorney Kenneth Davis. It took jurors 35 minutes to convict the Russell County man.

"I think this guy's a sexual predator," Davis said. "We're very pleased the jury believed the young girls and convicted him."

Jones committed the acts several times over the summer of 2007.

Jones has prior convictions of rape and forgery, Davis said. If convicted, he will be sentenced to life in prison without the chance of parole.
