Prosecutors say Jones forced an 11-year-old girl to have sex with him on multiple occasions over the course of nearly a year.

The girl told police he sometimes demanded sexual favors in exchange for ice cream money or permission to use his cellphone, according to court documents.

The incidents allegedly happened from September 2015 to July 2016.
