with Kevin Jones, one of three Kingwood teens accused of digging up a grave so they could make an actual skull bong, as opposed to that cheap plastic crap you get online.
Jones was adamant about his innocence.

He just wanted to get it out of the way and not pay a lot of legal fees, even though he's sure he would have won in the end.
