Jones is now being held in Dauphin County on $50,000 bail and a federal parole detainer, according to Blair County District Attorney Pete Weeks.

Arrangements are being made to arraign Jones by videoconference on his felony assault case in Blair County but due to COVID-19 and the federal hold on Jones, he won’t be moved from Dauphin County Prison anytime soon, Weeks said.
