UPDATE June 2, 2017
It appears to me that Billy and his wife simply were not up for the “heat” they were taking as a result of Billy’s announced withdrawal from supporting Kent Hovind. In addition to earlier removing his pro-Hovind videos which were critical of Hovind critics Deborah Henderson and Theodore Valenzuela/Valentine, it appears Billy has now just removed his video announcing his reasons for withdrawing his support from Kent Hovind. Based on earlier comments from Billy, I think his wife might have been the main influence resulting in that action. Maybe we will learn more about all of that later; maybe not. – RLBaty 10:35 AM MT
Odd, however, in light of the above, is a posting Billy made to Bill Ludlow earlier today (June 2, 2017) as illustrated below, and followed by an exchange with Michel Snoeck:

A Possible ID
Deana Holmes has come up with this possible ID on the subject under discussion, and she has clearly indicated that she is waiting for Billy or someone else to make a positive ID. So, we wait for a positive ID as well as on-line references for the details of the poker-playing case that has been mentioned.
Deana indicated that Mr. Jones was charged with a few other crimes in addition to the sex crimes. The above website shows the following regarding the sex crimes:

Update June 2, 2017 7:25 PM MT
Chris Jones’ letter from prison where he gives an account from his conspiratorial perspective and, as far as I noticed, without giving details as to the alleged/convicted sex crimes.
Update June 3, 2017 9:10 AM MT
Deana Holmes has posted screen shots of Chris Jones’ indictment and court history at the following link along with her comments:
Her comments include the following:
What I learned from these pages is basically this: He was indicted on seven counts and convicted on counts 4-7. He was sentenced to three years in the state penitentiary. He has since been released. I don’t see anything on the documentation that indicates he has to register as a sex offender, but the fact that he is registered in SC as a sex offender is pretty illustrative.
If one wants to support ex-cons, that’s great. However, Kent is minimizing the fact that Christopher Jones was convicted by a jury of his peers of three felony counts of “lewd or lascivious act with minor under the age of 14” and one lesser-included count.
This is serious business.
But it’s all of a piece with Kent.
He has consistently (and against all the facts) insisted that he was innocent, and in his mind, if a fellow ex-con tells him he too is innocent, then Kent is likely to believe him.
Update June 3, 2017 12:30 PM MT
Kent Hovind compelled to take time out to address Billy Summers’ video and profess his support for convicted sex offender Chris Jones. Kent takes up about half of the 8 minute video in promoting Chris. If, as indicated, Kent wants to analogize Chris’ case to his case, we might reasonably conclude that, despite the protestations, Chris was guilty as charged just as Kent was.
Billy has brought his video back up and it is found at the following link:
