Investigators said the abuse started when the victim was 10 years old and continued for seven years until she moved out of state.
In 2012, a friend of the victim reported her concerns that the girl had been molested by Jones, but an investigation at that time by Child Protective Services and police could not substantiate the allegation.
Investigators were hindered by the fact that the victim had moved to another state and had told authorities in that state she was not a victim of the alleged crime.
The case was reopened recently after police received additional information that Jones was in possession of child pornography.
Detectives obtained a search warrant and found Jones had an extensive collection of child pornography downloaded from the Internet as well as sexually graphic videos he had made of himself with the child victim.
Detectives contacted the victim again, who is now 19 years old.
She was cooperative and stated she was emotionally relieved that the investigation was moving forward.
