Timothy E. Jones convicted

Cape and Islands District Attorney Michael O'Keefe announced today that a Barnstable Superior Court jury convicted Timothy E. Jones (dob: 12/5/60) of 205 Mitchell's Way, Hyannis of Aggravated Rape, Armed Kidnapping with Sexual Assault, Assault with a Dangerous Weapon, and Threat to Commit Murder. After a two- day trial in the Barnstable Superior Court, Judge Richard Connon sentenced the defendant to twenty-five to thirty years in state prison.

On November 9, 2009, the defendant abducted the victim at knife point from the parking lot of her work in Dennis. He bound her with tape and forced her into a car. He drove to his home in Hyannis, where he repeatedly sexually assaulted her for over ten hours. Shortly after reporting the incident to the police a search warrant was executed at his home. Items seized from the home, including packing tape, tested positive for the victim's DNA.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Lisa Edmonds, Chief of the Domestic Violence Prosecution Unit. The defendant was represented by Attorney Lawrence Zalis of Barnstable. The case was investigated by the Barnstable Police Department and the Dennis Police Department.
