A jury concluded Thursday that notorious pedophile David Wayne Jones, despite having undergone surgical castration and promising that he no longer poses a threat to boys, remains a "sexually violent predator."

The decision by a Montgomery County jury means that by state law, the former YMCA counselor will remain under house arrest indefinitely. Mr. Jones had one year of parole left on a 15-year prison term early next year after he admitted molesting about 40 boys in the early 1990s.

Although he is not allowed to leave the building or go anywhere without an official escort, he will also wear a global positioning system beacon so authorities will always know his whereabouts. He is required to take part in sex-offender treatment and undergo regular lie-detector and sexual-stimulation tests.

He also must register as a sex offender and check in with authorities every 30 days. His civil commitment status will be reviewed every two years.

Any violations of the rules could result in a new felony prosecution and a return to prison.
