New Jersey's Gloucester Township Municipal Court was the venue for a Jermaine Jones appearance but not a performance. The former American Idol contestant was in court on Tuesday to answer multiple charges including contempt of court for failure to appear at previous hearings, according to the Gloucester Township Patch.
The charges stem from two arrests in 2011, Patch reports. Twice that year Jermaine gave a fake name to police -- once in March during an investigation of a disturbance at a Howard Johnson hotel and again in November when a car in which he was riding was pulled over. Fans may recall Jermaine's dismissal from the 11th season of Idol after producers learned of his past run-ins with the law.
There was no resolution of the charges, which Jones' lawyer told the Patch he's trying to resolve, but Municipal Court Judge Nicholas Trabosh said all the charges would be handled together within the next 30 days, though the judge did not set a hearing date.
As for Jermaine's music career, "There's a lot of great things going on," the singer says. On June 22-23, Jermaine will be performing at Warmdaddy's in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Jermaine says he is working on new music and hopes to release a CD soon.
