Probation Officer Arrested for Official Oppression

MIDLAND - A Midland County Probation Officer has been arrested and charged with Official Oppression.

26-year-old Robert Justin Jones was arrested Tuesday morning at work following an investigation that began last week.

Midland Police say Jones inappropriately touched an 18-year-old female while at the house of a man he is supervising. Jones was not at the home on official business.

Police say Jones is being charged with oppression because one of his probationers lived at the home, the victim is on probation and only allowed Jones to touch her because he is a Probation Officer.
