A Florida man decided the best shot at getting to his son's killer was through getting sent to jail himself – by raping a woman.
In August 2014, Joel Jones posted a Craigslist ad for job at his cleaning company. He lured a woman who answered the ad to a building where he raped her at knife point before calling the cops on himself.
According to Yahoo, the crime was a diabolical plot to get arrested and go to to prison only in order to find and confront the man who killed his 14-year-old son.
The Florida Department of Corrections says that Jones had a history. He has been convicted of sexual battery, burglary and second-degree murder and has been in jail in the past.
Jones was sentenced to 25 years in prison.
“This case is not really about what someone did to your child, but what you did to someone else’s child,” the judge said. “The things that you did to her were completely beyond the realm of what a human being should do to another human being.”
