We Can Prevent Child Abuse, or Tolerate it. Tell Our Leaders to Prevent it.


The region continued to deal with a spate of violence toward young children in 2016, with a weeks-old infant dying at the hands of her father and a young girl from Fort Edward suffering severe head injuries from an assault among the more serious cases.

Nicholas D. Jones, 25, will serve at least 22 years in state prison for his Oct. 17 guilty plea in the death of his 22-day-old daughter two days after he allegedly shook and threw her in his Johnsburg home.

The baby, Gabriella Rose Jones, died two days after she was hospitalized with severe head injuries that Nicholas Jones inflicted when she woke up and wouldn’t stop crying. He confessed to State Police after his daughter was hospitalized at Albany Medical Center.

 Nicholas Jones was indicted on second-degree murder and manslaughter charges and accepted a plea deal that resulted in the murder charge being dropped. He apologized during sentencing, though his apology upset some, as it focused more on the impact the death had on him than on the family of his child.
