Jones Not Likely to Face Charges

By  | 

The attorney for a former male prostitute who says he had sex with disgraced Colorado Springs pastor Ted Haggard says he doesn't expect his client will face criminal charges.

Attorney David Lane tells the Denver Post Denver police tried to question his client, Mike Jones, but Jones is referring all questions to Lane, who is NOT talking.

Jones publicly admitted serving as Haggard's prostitute and to helping the pastor obtain the drug methamphetamine. Lane says those admissions could have been used against him.

Jones' statements led leaders at Colorado Springs' New Life Church to fire Haggard earlier this month. Haggard founded the New Life Church in the 1980s and rose to prominence in a powerful alliance of conservative ministers.
