AIR FORCE COL WILLIAM R. JONESWhen we first wrote about Col. William R. Jones earlier this year, see Related Stories Box below, there's been some mystery about just why the well-liked former fighter pilot had been fired at Shaw AFB, South Carolina.

Now we know, and it's a black eye for the brass. The colonel has been charged with possession of child pornography and obstruction of justice. If convicted at court martial, the 23-year Air Force pilot could spend the next 10 years behind bars at the Leavenworth DB.

He faces a preliminary hearing on August 8.

Jones was a command pilot and flight instructor with more than 2000 hours in the air. Now he's been shifted to a desk job from his previous position as vice-commander of the 20th Wing.

ACCUSED COLONEL NOW DEPUTY CHIEF
OF "SAFETY" AT SHAW AIR FORCE BASE

"Col. Jones is presumed innocent until proven guilty by a court of law," said an embarrassed Col. Stephen Jost, commanding officer at Shaw. It was Jost who fired his deputy back in February. Details of why that happened were kept under wraps until this past weekend.

Prior to coming to Shaw, Jones served with the 31st Operations Squadron at Aviano, Italy, and then at Luke AFB in Arizona.

Since his firing, Jones has been leading a quiet existence as deputy chief of safety at Shaw. What's "safe" about putting an accused child porn pervert in such a position? Couldn't the commander have found Jones another less awkward position?
