SHARE Prosecutor named judge in 2nd District Court

OGDEN — Ernest W. Jones, a prosecutor for the past 26 years, has been appointed a judge in Ogden's 2nd District Court.

Jones, 50, of Roy, has been a Salt Lake County prosecutor since 1980 and was with the Weber County Attorney's Office for six years before that.

He was selected by Gov. Mike Leavitt to succeed Mike Glasmann, who resigned in May following allegations of sexual advances toward women, including one defendant assigned to his court.

Jones was one of the finalists for 2nd District judge in 1992, but the vacancy was filled by Glasmann, appointed by then Gov. Norm Bangerter.

Jones may be best known for the prosecution in 1982 and 1983 of Marc and Francis Schreuder for the murder of Franklin Bradshaw. Francis Schreuder had her son Marc kill her father, Bradshaw.

His selection for the 2nd District bench is subject to ratification by the state Senate.

Jones was a freshman class president at Weber State in 1965, according to his resume, but ended up earning his undergraduate degree at the University of Utah by 1969 in political science.
