Felon Charged With Hitting Ex Says It Came After Threesome But Now Remanded to Prison

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 2 – A defendant on supervised release for a 2013 armed robbery is now charged with selling crack and hitting, or strangling, his ex-girlfriend, allegedly as part of a threesome or "poly" relationship.

Inner City Press attended a three hour hearing about Jones' alleged violations of supervised release on April 28, 2023.  

 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Sidney H. Stein held the hearing. At one point he asked Inner City Press why it found this more interesting than "Judge Kaplan's trial," that of E. Jean Carroll v. Trump. (That trial was on Friday hiatus on April 28).  

  Defendant Untra Jones was slumped in his chair. His lawyer said he had a problem with his posterior.

After three law enforcement witnesses, a Lakeysha Quinones testified that as Jones' current girlfriend, she had consented to a "poly" relationship with Untra's ex, the victim.

  She and Untra both testified they when to have a threeway in Untra's house, actually the residence of his client (Untra is a live-in home health attendant).

   But soon the ex felt Untra was paying too much attention to her successor, and mentioned some past abuse of Untra that was not allowed into evidence. She said Untra "strangled" the victim, after she hit him. 

  "No further questions," the Assistant US Attorney said.   

On May 2, "ORDER as to Untra Jones: IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that defendant Untra Jones [USM No. 69298-054] is remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal for the Southern District of New York. (Signed by Judge Sidney H. Stein on 5/2/2023)."

Inner City Press watched as two Marshals took Untra Jones out through the side door.

  This case is US v. Untra Jones, 13-cr-836 (Stein)
