Old felony conviction trips up two-term Florissant city council member

FLORISSANT — A two-term member of the Florissant City Council resigned Monday after it was revealed he had a felony conviction from 20 years ago.

According to Florissant Mayor Tim Lowery’s office, Ward 2 Council member Timothy M. Jones submitted a brief letter explaining his decision to step down after consulting with a city attorney.

Under state law, felons cannot hold elective office.

Court records show Jones, 52, was convicted of driving while intoxicated in St. Charles County in 1999. He received a four-year sentence that was suspended in exchange for him serving 120 days in a shock incarceration program operated by the Missouri Department of Corrections.
