Sandy Hook household lawyer exposes Alex Jones’ dishonesty in brutal cross-examination

A jury will decide how much Jones will have to pay parents Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis, who won a default judgment earlier this year. An attorney representing Heslin and Lewis asked the jury to award $150 million.

Jones, who was the defense’s only witness during the trial, was out of luck Wednesday as he was cross-examined by plaintiffs’ attorney Mark Bankston.

In an extraordinary moment, Bankston revealed to Jones and the court that he had recently obtained evidence that proved Jones had lied when he claimed during discovery that he never texted about the 2012 incident. Sandy Hook shooting.

Bankston said Jones’ attorney sent him two years of cell phone records containing all the text messages Jones had sent in an apparent disaster.

According to Bankston, cell phone records showed that Jones did indeed make contact with the Sandy Hook shooting.

“That’s how I know you lied to me when you said you didn’t get the messages about Sandy Hook,” Bankston said.

Bankston showed Jones the text message exchange about Sandy Hook. However, Jones testified that he “never saw these text messages.”

When reminded that Jones testified under oath that he searched his phone during the investigation and couldn’t find any messages about Sandy Hook, Jones insisted he “didn’t lie.”

Jones wrongly said that after the Sandy Hook shooting, which killed 26 people, the incident was staged. Jones admitted to the shooting after receiving the pleas.

Jones in 2019 said in an affidavit that a “form of psychosis” led him to believe it was staged.

In court Wednesday, Jones said he believed the Sandy Hook shooting happened, saying it was “100% real.”

In another key moment during cross-examination on Wednesday, Jones was asked if he had linked Presiding Judge Maya Guerra Gamble to pedophilia and human trafficking.

When Jones denied doing it, Bankston played the court a video from the Infowars video that contained exactly that.

In the video, Jones attacked Gamble’s past work with Child Protective Services, claiming the agency was “exposed” for “working for pedophiles.”

Gamble, whose office did not respond to an earlier request for comment about the fact that Infowars attacked her with those words, saw a screenshot of the video in court Wednesday.

“The man on the left of this image is our judge, right? Bankston asked Jones.

Jones said yes.

Attorneys for the plaintiffs said Tuesday they plan to seek sanctions against Jones for dishonesty on the stand. Gamble also admonished Jones on Tuesday for twice breaking his oath to tell the truth.

“You’re already sworn to tell the truth,” Gamble said Tuesday. “You’ve already broken that oath twice today, just with those two examples. It seems absurd to make you testify again that you must tell the truth. But here I am again.”

“It’s not your show,” Gamble added to him on Wednesday.

After Jones finished testifying Wednesday, the defense rested its case and began closing arguments.

A jury could decide how much damages to award the Sandy Hook parents as early as this week.

The current trial is the first of three that will determine how much Jones will have to pay several Sandy Hook families who sued him and won default judgments.
