When voters In Knox and Laurel counties go to the polls Nov. 4 to select a new family court judge, they will have candidate Stephen Jones’ criminal history to consider.

The Committee to Elect Marilyn Benge McGhee Family Court Judge has set up a website,, where the documents detailing Jones arrests in 1998 and 2001 on charges of possession of cocaine driving under the influence and violating a domestic violence order may be viewed.

Jones noted that all of this happened prior to attending law school.
