Mother whose DWI crash killed daughter sentenced to prison

Samantha Jones, 32

Samantha Jones, 32

A Smithville mother who killed her five-year-old daughter in a DWI crash has been sentenced to nine years in prison. Samantha Jones, 32, received the sentence on July 12 after pleading guilty in May to driving while intoxicated, resulting in the death of Macklyn Lucas.

Platte County Prosecuting Attorney Eric Zahnd said, "This defendant owed her highest duty of care to her five-year-old daughter. But instead of protecting her, the defendant chose to drive with a blood alcohol content more the twice the legal limit. It's not a mitigating circumstance when a mother kills her own child by driving drunk; it's an aggravating factor when a defendant places her own child in harm's way."

Jones had left a gathering in Camden Point at about 9:00 p.m. on June 18, 2018. Shortly after leaving, she lost control of her car on E Hwy near Skinner Lake Road. The car's rear passenger side door hit a telephone pole, breaking the pole into two pieces.

Jones' daughter, Macklyn Lucas, was belted into a car seat on the rear passenger side. She suffered a traumatic head injury in the crash and died less than three days later at Children's Mercy Hospital.

Jones admitted to drinking as much as two bottles of wine in about 3 1/2 hours. About 45 minutes before leaving the party, Jones posted photos of full wine glasses and a photo with her daughter on her social media accounts. The photos were posted with the hashtag, #momsneeddrinks.

Jones' blood alcohol level was .186 roughly two hours after the crash, more than twice the legal limit of .08.

During his sentencing argument, Zahnd responded to Jones' social media posts. "The defendant said moms need drinks. I will say this: Moms need to put their kids first. Moms need to protect their children. Moms need to obey the law. Moms must not get behind the wheel of a car after they’ve had drinks."

Dozens of people supporting Jones attended the hearing, and Jones' attorney read portions of letters from several people. The letter writers asserted Jones should not receive a prison sentence because she killed her own daughter and would punish herself more than prison ever could.

Zahnd said he did not doubt that Jones was anguished by the death of her daughter, but he asserted her crime deserved prison time. "If we treat DWI cases—especially those where someone has been killed—with a slap of the wrist, there is little left to deter would-be drunk drivers from taking the risk of driving home when they’ve been drinking."

Zahnd asked the court to impose a 14-year prison sentence. The defendant's attorney sought probation. Circuit Judge Thomas Fincham sentenced Jones to nine years in prison.

The case was investigated by the Platte County Sheriff's Department. It was personally prosecuted by Zahnd and assistant prosecuting attorneys Amy Ashelford and Max Pepper.

A photo of Jones and her social media post are above. If you need additional information, contact our office's media liaison, Tanya Faherty.

Platte County Prevails in Lawsuit against Zona Rosa Bond Trustee

Platte County Prevails in

Lawsuit against Zona Rosa Bond Trustee

KANSAS CITY, MO. (May 31, 2019) — On Thursday, Circuit Court Judge James Van Amburg issued a decision granting summary judgment in favor of Platte County in its declaratory judgment action against UMB Bank, N.A., the Trustee for the Zona Rosa Bonds.

In its order, the Court rejected the Trustee’s demand for Platte County to pay shortfalls on the Zona Rosa Bonds in 2018 and each year thereafter. This demand would have imposed on Platte County an immediate liability of $765,390.95 and a long-term liability of up to $40 million through 2032. The Court agreed with Platte County’s position, finding that Platte County never agreed to make any payments to cover shortfalls for the Zona Rosa Bonds.

“The Commission’s lawsuit has saved Platte County taxpayers tens of millions of dollars,” said Todd Graves, counsel for Platte County along with Dane Martin and Jennifer Donnelli. “The Court was correct to reject the Trustee’s effort to impose a bondholder bailout on taxpayers. This is a great day for taxpayers—and a firm rebuke to financiers attempting to abuse the public treasury. The Zona Rosa Bonds will continue to be paid using the dedicated 1 percent sales tax in Zona Rosa, as has always been the case.”

In its Motion, Platte County sought a declaration from the Court regarding the validity of the Trustee’s demand that it cover shortfalls for the Zona Rosa Bonds. The Zona Rosa Bonds were issued by a third-party entity, not Platte County, to finance parking garages in the Zona Rosa shopping center. Under the Financing Agreement, the bonds are payable from a 1 percent sales tax in Zona Rosa.

Platte County continues to support Zona Rosa as a private shopping district and looks forward to the ongoing changes and improvements being made.

Internet robber sentenced to 20 years in prison

Jalen Clayton, 19

Jalen Clayton, 19

A Kansas City teenager has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for robbing two people at gunpoint after arranging over the internet to meet them to sell a cell phone.  Jalen Clayton, 19, received the sentence in Platte County on May 30 after pleading guilty in March to two counts of first degree robbery and two counts of armed criminal action.  

Platte County Prosecuting Attorney Eric Zahnd said, “This sentence sends a clear message that, in Platte County, violent crimes carry severe penalties. We won't tolerate criminals who prey on the users of online marketplaces."

Clayton admitted that, on March 18, 2018, he lured two victims to 5615 North Anita Avenue by posting an iPhone 8 for sale on the Offer Up app.  When the victims arrived, Clayton got in the backseat of the victim's car and pulled out a black handgun. Clayton then took the magazine out of the gun, showed the victims the bullets inside, and demanded their possessions. Each of the victims gave Clayton their cell phones, and he ran away from the car.

Judge Thomas Fincham sentenced Clayton to 20 years on each of the robbery charges and 15 years on each of the armed criminal action charges.  The sentences will run concurrently.  Because first degree robbery is classified under Missouri law as a dangerous felony, Clayton must serve 85% of his sentence before he becomes eligible for parole.

Zahnd reminded people to be safe when meeting strangers to complete online transactions.  "The Kansas City Police Department now has online exchange locations in the parking lots of its patrol stations.  We encourage people to use these locations or other safe, populated locations during daylight hours when meeting strangers to complete internet purchases."

The case was investigated by the Kansas City Missouri Police Department.  It was prosecuted by assistant prosecutor Max Pepper.

 A photo of Clayton is above.  If you need additional information, please feel free to contact our office's media liaison, Tanya Faherty.
