Jones refuses to give blood sample

Laurel Ward 7 Councilman Joseph Jones, accused of a sex crime, claims giving up a blood sample would violate his constitutional rights.
          
Judge Billy Joe Landrum has ordered Jones to provide a blood sample for DNA testing. But Jones claims giving blood is against his religious beliefs. He says he's been a Jehovah's Witness since birth.

A private lab in Laurel refused to take his blood, with officials there saying they want to check first with their attorney.

Jones is accused of having sex with a 13-year-old girl.
