An assistant prosecutor in Wayne County for the past 12 years, Jones earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of Minnesota and her law degree from Western Michigan University Cooley Law School. She and her husband, David, an attorney in Detroit, have two young daughters. Judge Jones is pictured in the photo #2 with (left to right) her husband, Prosecutor Worthy, and Mayor Duggan.
