Clark County Sheriff Ticketed For Spotlighting Deer In Scotland County

Illegal deer hunting practices apparently have gotten Clark County Sheriff Doug Jones in trouble once again.

For the second time since being elected in November of last year, Jones is in hot water over deer hunting after he was caught near Azen in an alleged spotlighting incident on November 13.

Jones was ticketed in Scotland County and faces three misdemeanor counts. He was charged with attempting to take deer with an artificial light; attempting to take deer from a public roadway; and attempting to take deer from a motor vehicle.

Jones will have a November 27 court date in Scotland County.

This marks the second run in with conservation officers during Jone's brief tenure as sheriff. He pled guilty to charges of unlawful possession of a rifle-shot antlered deer in Van Buren County, IA, earlier this year. He and a fellow "hunter" were sentenced to perform 40 hours of community service and was forced to reimburse the state $2,000 for the deer while also paying $10 in fines and court costs.

The misdemeanor hunting charges comes in the wake of yet further legal trouble for Jones who currently is under investigation in Clark County for alleged sexual misconduct with a female prisoner. No charges have been filed in the case.

The incident allegedly took place October 12 and involved a 19-year old prisoner that was being transported by Jones to the Clark County Jail. It is under investigation by the Missouri State Highway Patrol Division of Drug and Crime Control as well as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
