Gregory Jones, Sr. – President


 Gregory Jones started with Teen Court programs in 2001 when he was a volunteer for a Maryland Teen Court.  He served in all adult court roles, including as the Teen Court Judge.  He has retired from the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission and from the U.S. Army after 28 years where he was a Lieutenant Colonel.  He is still active as a volunteer firefighter with the Forestville Volunteer Fire Department in Prince George’s County, Maryland and with the Hollywood Volunteer Rescue Squad in St. Mary’s County, Maryland.  In 2012 he joined St. Mary’s County Government as the Teen Court Coordinator, redesigning and re-activating the Teen Court Program in that county.  During this time he has expanded the program to include juvenile (under age 18) traffic offenses referred by the State’s Attorney’s Office for St. Mary’s County.  This makes the St. Mary’s County Teen Court Program only the second one in the state to offer the diversion opportunity to juvenile traffic offenders.  In 2019 he was elected to be the MDTCA President after having been the MDTCA Vice President since 2015.  He continues to manage the MDTCA website.
