Family Court Judge Suspended

(Las Vegas, NV)  —  A Family Court judge charged in an investment fraud scheme is off the bench.

The state Judicial Discipline Commission has suspended Judge Steven Jones with pay, until his criminal case is resolved.

Jones and five others have been indicted on charges they persuaded people to lend them money, promising fast repayment with interest.  Prosecutors allege Jones used his position to vouch for the other defendants, including his former brother-in-law.

Jones has pleaded not guilty, and he will go to trial in August.
