After a year of living the life of a prep school boy at Cornwall Academy, Allen Jones returned to the Bronx in the summer of 1970. The first thing he needed to do when he got home was deal with his criminal past. Just before the State Supreme Court closed for the summer, he had to appear for sentencing. A year and a half had passed since Jones last stood before the judge. Since then, he had become a different person, and he was determined to look the part. He had his hair cut short, Caesar style, and wore a suit and tie. In one hand, he held the trophy given to him for winning the conference scoring championship, and in the other he held his honor roll grades, along with the letter offering him a scholarship to Montreat Anderson Junior College.
