Police say a Florida man, 49-year-old Joel Jones, allegedly raped a woman and then called 911 to turn himself in. When Police arrived to arrest him, he told them he wanted to go to prison to get even with a man who killed his 14 year old son.
The Palm Beach Post reports that the victim told police that Jones attacked her in August 2014 when she responded to an advert he placed asking for a cleaner for his offices. She said he attacked her and raped her as he was showing her an office building she would clean for him.

She said he let her go after the attack, and she heard him calling 911 as she left.

Jones was sentenced on Thursday to 25 years in prison on a conviction of armed sexual battery.

According to the Florida Department of Corrections, Jones was convicted for sexual battery and burglary in 1991 and served more than two years of a six-year sentence. He also served almost eight years of a 12 year prison sentence for a second-degree murder, according to department of corrections records.
