Police say Donald Marvin Jones tried to hire a prostitute just a few years after his first charge made national headlines
A prominent University of Miami School of Law professor who specializes in criminal procedure has been charged with soliciting a prostitute -- again.
A misdemeanor charged of purchasing services from a prostitute was filed Monday against Donald Marvin Jones, 59.
Jones was previously charged with misdemeanor solicitation of a prostitute after allegedly offering an undercover officer $20 for sex from his Mercedes SL500 in October 2007, a case that gained widespread attentioned when he sued the legal blog Above the Law for defamation after he was named the site's 'Lawyer of the Day' and dubbed "The Nutty Professor" in an ensuing post.
Jones voluntarily dismissed his $22 million lawsuit a week after filing. Charges in the 2007 case were quietly dropped; the details of this week's arrest were not immediately available.
advertisement The University of Miami is aware of the situation concerning UM School of Law Professor Donald M. Jones," said school spokesperson Karla Hernandez in a statement to NBCMiami. "It is our policy not to comment on personnel matters and will be unable to issue any further statement at this time.
According to his university bio, Jones has appeared on PBS 'Frontline', CNNs 'Burden of Proof', 'The OReilly Factor', and Michael Putneys 'The Week in Review.'
In 2005, he published the book 'Race, Sex, and Suspicion: The Myth of the Black Male.'
Personnel matter? Looks like a criminal matter!
He was in his Mercedes Benz SL500 and offered the girl $20? Those poor, underpaid college professors.
Funny - but then on the other hand do I really care if the professor hires a prostitute? No, I do not. Not any of my concern.
How much enjoyment can you get for that? Most Miami crack-skanks will pass on a $20. And was he going to let thm into his SL? Gick.
I wouldn't be shocked if this professor also happened to be married.
According to the immutable law of supply and demand, times must be awfully tough for prostitutes in Michigan right now.
Maybe Obama can come up with a new subsidy to save good paying jobs on the streets of Michigan.
