On August 3, 2017 the Juneau County District Attorney's office filed multiple felony charges against 46 year old Brian J. Jones of Camp Douglas. Jones is facing two counts of 1st degree child sex assault/sexual contact with person under age of 13; three counts of child sexual exploitation; four counts of child enticement-expose sex organ; and six counts of possession of child pornography. Jones was placed on a $50,000 cash bond and is not to have contact with the victims nor their caregivers. He is in custody at the Juneau County Jail. In addition to these charges, Jones has two other cases active in Juneau County. On October 28, 2016 he was charged with 2nd degree sexual assault/use of force and then on October 31, 2016 he was charged with 1st degree sexual assault-intercourse with a person under the age of 12, incest, and possession of child pornography.

According to the criminal complaint last October Detective Ben Goehring with the Juneau County Sheriff's Office received a referral from the Monroe County Sheriff's Department on a sexual assault in Juneau County involving Jones. It was through that investigation the initial charges were filed against jones. Multiple search warrants were executed at the defendant's home, including in March of this year. Several digital media devices were recovered from the residence. The criminal complaint goes on to state the digital media contained thousands of photographs of children engaged in sexually explicit conduct. In addition to the photographs, authorities claim there were also videos recovered. The videos start with defendant on camera concealing a camera within the bedroom are of his home.

At this time an initial appearance has not yet been scheduled in the most recent case, however, online court records do show that in the two previous cases that there has been negotiations although Jones had refused the State of Wisconsin's offer of 30 years of initial confinement and 20 years of extended supervision. It was at that hearing, on August 3, the prosecution informed the court that more charges will be filed.
