ONLY ON 3: Deputy's wife sues another deputy for alienation of affection

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- New Hanover County Sheriff Ed McMahon demoted two deputies last month for conduct unbecoming. Because it's personnel, the Sheriff's Office won't say what happened.

Today we found the wife of one of the deputies has filed an alienation of affection lawsuit against a New Hanover County detective.

In the lawsuit filed last week, Cheryl Jones says New Hanover County Sheriff's Det. Gina Turner "woo(ed) and seduce(d)" her husband Dep. Sean Jones. She claims the two had a sexual relationship, even though Turner knew Jones was married.

In another document, Turner's husband, who lives in Michigan, said he found out Turner was in a relationship with Jones, who was her supervisor at the Sheriff's Office.

Turner's husband said his wife would leave their diabetic son at home up to four nights a week to stay with Sean Jones; one time leaving both of their minor children in the middle of the night Dec. 21 and not returning until the early morning hours of Dec. 23.

It's unclear whether the lawsuit and Jones's demotion are connected.

On top of losing rank, Jones had his hourly pay docked. A day later, Turner was also disciplined. She was suspended for 40 hours for violating the Sheriff's Office's policies on truthfulness and conduct unbecoming.

We reached out to Turner this afternoon for comment. She has not yet returned our calls.

The right one!

In reading these blogs, I realized the attorney Lady Jones has in her corner. Melodi Hayes is a excellent lawyer. She is a bulldog in the courtroom which is excellent for her. She will eat them like a crocodile has fish for dinner
Some yrs ago she represented a friend of mine and she walked away with half of everything he had. I would recommend her to anyone in this situation. You go,Mrs Jones. I'm rooting for you. You deserve it!

itspossible

I had the privilege of seeing Rev Jones son presiding the service at Macedoina Baptist Church on yesterday,where his dad started his ministry. It was amazing to see this young man speak so eloquently as he did.I am so glad to see he is prospering so well amongst his father's actions.You should be proud Rev Jones as I'm sure you are. However it is sad to see the son I doing better than his dad who despite everything is still a minister. You should get a copy and watch your son. He is a exceptional young man. This should inspire you to do the right thing. This is not to embarrass you or bash you. We all make bad choices,you have a chance to get it right.God bless you!

Enough

Mr. Jones, May the wrath of God,bring you down!

Slow News Day???

Slow News Day???

As a tax payer in this

As a tax payer in this state, if the officials we employ are running around having affairs at the office on my dime its a news story I want to hear. And I want to know how much of our money they wasted conducting this affair, and if I paid for as much as one text message between these two lovebirds.

"Slow news day?" Not nearly as "Slow" as you.

They have to keep it "slow" for dwindling, burnt out has-beens like you that have nothing better to do than post to constant complaints here. Go back to your crack pipe and relaaaaaax....

Funny...this article aired 7/28/14 and you're just now getting to it? Slow? Dehhhh, yep!

No satisfaction here

I can certainly share her pain, but this suit will be an expensive and totally unsatisfying nonstarter. Courts don't get involved in this stuff any more.

More News

As I was reading the previous blogs,I have a better understanding of some of this.Someone wrote Turner has been to this woman's house being friendly with her. That is a low down snake belly thing to do to anybody.And Mr. Jones you allowed this to happen.She is your co worker and you end up with her.You are a preacher! What is this woman suppose to think. Do either of you have any morals? Both of you need to do soul searching.Would you want someone to do this to you? You both need Jesus.Be careful how you treat others! The unjust doesn't prosper,you should know this Preacher Jones.

Men

Why do these men do dumb stuff,get caught and want to blame someone else.They need to man up!Mr.Jones.you should do the right thing. You say you are a preacher. Don't you know God know what you Did and know what you doing now. Your life will never be right until you do what God called you to do.Ms Turner,you are dead wrong. You went in this woman's house,smiling at her and being her friend. God has a place for you,too. Ms. Jones,Hold your head up,my husband of 28 yrs decided the babysitter would be his new wife. After sulking two months, I got wise. I got his pension,his 401k,alimony for 15 yrs. Claim it in Jesus name. It is yours. Now he calling me wanting to borrow money. Be glad you are RID of the bogus preacher but pray for him.

First of all how cowardly

First of all how cowardly you can't even say your own name. The group of adults above have ridiculous and immature and if I were your children I would be so ashamed.To all the people that don't have anything better to do than stick their large noses into drama shame on you. I am an 18 year old adult and look if you read my comment in going to use my real name because im not a coward or ashamed! It hurts me to see my loving mother be ridiculed for false accusations. Matt Turner is my step father and I love him very much but the woman that caused all this is Sean Jones wife. She wanted someone to blame for her dead marriage so she's pointing every finger at everyone but herself. If you look at the paperwork Sean and his wife had been divorced for two years prior to these acqusations. If the pathetic adults on here are going to make such henious and childish acqusations at least don't be stupid enough to look only at the narrow mind media a story. Seriously don't half the adults on here have something better to do? And to ALL the people from churches that have commented on here and yes I am talking to the woman from life point and the people from New beginnings church, shame on you. It's people like you that corrupt Christianity for people trying to seek Gods love, we are all imperfect and sinful in Gods eyes. So the people speaking slander and saying they don't deserve Gods love, your commuting just as much as a sin as a murderer or adulteress. You should be welcoming people with loving arms because that's what Christianity is all about... Love for God and others through him. I guess it comes to show that it's people like you that make people stay away from churches and make a bad name for Christianity.

MOMMY

What kind
of a mom is this?First you leave your sick child in the house for days to go spend the night with a preacher.Then you get your 18 yr old to bad mouth someone who you befriended and now is accusing of lying. How is anyone supposed to believe you. Now you want to act like the wounded one.I'm so glad. I don't know you. And then you are a cop. Lady,you have some nerve. Throw stones when you don't have any in your back yard!

18? IT SEEMS SO

AS I read the comment you submitted,I begin to wonder if their was anything to what you were saying. T agree that people should use their real names,thats why I decided to use mine. You stated a lady started all of these rumors about your mom. I was with you until I decided to check this out for myself. I feel people shouldn't make false accusations. I found out information in the clerks office is public info. You can also purchase it,$2 for first page and .25 for each additional sheet.I got the Jones divorce as well as your parents. Its seems you have some wrong info,Sean has NOT been divorced 2 yrs as you stated,if this is correct it hasn't been a year. You should also know it takes two in marriages no matter who is at fault.I saw mothimg in the Jones divorce of anyone saying anything about adultery. However, Matthew Turner stated his wife had a affair with Sean and two other men.Is there ant truth in that? He did make this statement under oath. Wasn't that childish or just the truth? Perhaps you are pointing fingers at the wrong persom.I also read the article on the two of them being guilty of UNTRUTHFULNESS amd CONDUCT UNBECOMING OF OFFICERS at the Sheriffs Office, So have you aked,what did they lie about? You also stated the people in churches should not be talking. Im sure you kmow now this man is a minister if you didn't before. Or is it okay because your mom is with him. Maybe you shouls ask a real pastor about what mimisters should and shouldn't do or be involved in. Nobody doubts you love your family,but you should learn the facts before you speak since you say you are a adult,however you are not 21.God does love and forgive us all,thats why he gives us chances to do right. If one choses to continue to go against Him,thats on them. Maybe you should wait until all the facts are in before you point a finger.Be careful on opening a can of worms,that seem to be adult affairs, You may not like the worm that comes out! GOOD LUCK

Real names or not, adults or not...

...both of you above can't spell, punctuate or otherwise write a comprehensible sentence, making it difficult at best for anyone to understand what you're attempting to convey.

I've read and re-read and still struggle to gain your points. I recommend that you both stick to anonymity, so that nobody knows who you are! This sort of writing will follow you around for a while!

heimie

I too agree many misspellings but that doesn't matter,I understand what each is saying, Sounds like they just in a hurry to type.People,should not make comments,if they don't want responses,teenagers or not. There is some lies somewhere. And if you can't understand them, you have the option to ignore!

Like your comment

Ignore like I should have done with your comment? Try posting again once you sober up.

Adults

Seems to me the adults in this matter should fight their own battles and leave teenager out of it. Shame on you!(

to say what

Sure time and effort,truthfulness,and accurate info. I worked with two said indiviuals.Everyone could see the flirting,looks, and signs they were giving each other. We knew long before spouses found out.Maybe I didnt spell every word right,dot every i or cross every t. Its ok. The fact of the matter is what they did. But you keep dwelling on spelling.Like someone else wrote, do you see the talking. The truth will come out and it doesnt matter what we say or think or write!

What does it matter

Spellcheck,grammer,all caps,what difference does that make. You are all on here to read comments like me and eveyone else. So one person is writing more than one blog,( I highly doubt that),to much info is being told.Somebody knows something! I agree,this man is a minister.he is wrong,no ifs and buts about it. Those of you who tend to ignore this (like gesty) should not be even speaking. I wonder if gesty is married and how she/he would feel being cheated on.Have you noticed Ms Turner nor Mr Jones has spoken. Its my understanding they both now have admitted to the affair and are still together.So let the take their punishment and move on! You work in a public office,things are bound to come out. It goes with the flow.

Good for you

So you turned off caps lock to try to blend in but you can't turn off your basic grammar mistakes.

so say what

Wasnt trying and didnt care about blending in. If I did I would have corrected the mistakes. Even you knew what I was saying. The point was getting the word out! When you know something about the situation, you put it on here and make sure everything is spelled right! Youre right,thanks,that was good for me! Tell youre friends,Ms Turner and Mr. Jones Good Luck!

better

You are getting better with the grammar but you are still making enough mistakes to show you are the same poster of all the caps lock comments. And to clarify, I don't know any of the parties involved in this matter.

agreed

I just read a comment from someone who asked Ms. Jones,why did your husband cheat? Well,at least you recoginized he did cheat. Isnt that the principal of all of this? And he is a minister,do any of you people know what that means. Or do you serve God!

Troll

Has anybody else noticed the 5 comment below mine are all written with caps lock, all have the same grammar errors and the posters name runs the first and last name together?

Me thinks there is a troll.

guesty

I have noticed the 5 comments all in caps,grammer errors,etc. Just tells me they used a computer without without spellcheck. Whats the big deal? Its the information that is important.You know no one uses their real name,you didnt.Seems to me you a troll like everyone else!Me think! what school did you attend.Werent you named with a first and last name? Think about that!

Thank you

Cute. A computer without spell check? That would be an Etch-a-Sketch which might be more your speed. And you have made all the same basic grammar mistakes shown in the other posts. My bet is you are the author of all of them.

"computer without without spellcheck" ?

You are aware aware, aren't you, that spellcheck's essentially built right into this site aren't you?

If a poster is this careless with the simple basics of posting to a site, why should anyone feel that the poster is putting any more time and effort into conveying truthfully accurate information to others?

FINDING SEAN JONES

I WORKED FOR THIS MAN YRS AGO.ALTHOUGH I DIDNT ALWAYS AGREE WITH HIS METHODS AND WAYS,I GAVE HIM BENEFIT OF DOUBT BECAUSE HE WAS DOING A JOB.HE ALWAYS TALKED ABOUT HIS WIFE AND SON,AND WHAT THEY MEANT TO HIM!WAS ALL THAT A LIE!I ALWAYS KNEW HIM TO BE A UPRIGHT MAN WITH PRIDE WHO WOULD NOT STOOP THIS LOW.HE HAS LOST THE RESPECT OF THE SHERIFFS OFFICE,HIS CHURCH,AND THE COMMUNITY.I ALSO HEARD HIM SPEAK AT CHURCH AND I REMEMBER THINKING,HE WILL MAKE A GREAT PREACHER! IT IS SAD TO LEAVE THAT BEHIND AFTER GOD BESTOWED IT UPON YOU AFTER YOU SAY YOU WERE CALLED.I AGREE WITH ANOTHER COMMENT WRITTEN,HIS FATE WILL NOT BE ON EARTH,GODS WRATH IS NOT GOOD.I JUST HOPE HE TURNS HIS LIFE AROUND AND GET IT RIGHT. BUT THATS HIS CHOICE,WE ALL MAKE BAD CHOICES,THE THING IS FIXING IT.I WOULD LIKE TO SEE HIM DO BETTER!
