The offences dated back to the 1990’s when Jones repeatedly raped and abused four young girls.

Jones was convicted of six charges of rape, one charge of attempted rape and six charges of indecent assault. he has been placed on the sex offenders’ register for life.

Jones led the North Wales Alliance (NWA) after a split in the English Defence League (EDL) and the Welsh Defence League (WDL), but he still worked closely with the EDL, and the Scottish Defence League (SDL).

He was also well known in British National Party (BNP) circles and joined the party in a campaign against a local Muslim centre and later campaignbed with the BNP against suppoed Muslim “grooming gangs”.
