GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KREX) — A group of Mesa County jurors gathered in court for day two of Dr. Paul Brennan Jones v. the Emmons family.

Over the next week, the Mesa County district court will determine if Jones, a fertility doctor used his own sperm to impregnate multiple women without their knowledge.

It all started in October of 2019 when the Emmons family alleged in a lawsuit, that a fertility doctor used his own sperm instead of an anonymous donor’s to impregnate a woman without her consent.

The lawsuit says, Dr. Jones of Grand Junction, committed fraud by using his own sperm to artificially inseminate, Cheryl Emmons, allowing her to give birth to two daughters in 1980 and 1985.

Dr. Paul Jones is an owner and founder of Women’s Health Care of Western Colorado. It was at this clinic in Grand Junction, that Dr. Jones performed countless insemination procedures.

Jones received his license to practice medicine in Colorado on July 11th, 1972.

Maia Boring and Tahnee Scott, Cheryl Emmons’ daughters, confronted their mother in 2019, after learning of a list of half-sibling matches discovered through Ancestery.com.

The message Maia received on Ancestery.com didn’t just inform her that she and the messenger were half-siblings, it contained even more information that shook her to her core.

It was then she discovered multiple women underwent artificial inseminations by Dr. Jones at the same clinic in Grand Junction.

That’s when a previous DNA sample from Jones’ brother already in the Ancestry.com data based linked Maia to Dr. Jones.

Through the use of Ancestry.com, the Emmons have now found at least eight others, they say are their half-siblings.

Today (4/19) in court, a woman from an entirely different family also claimed to share DNA with Dr. Jones. Tomorrow (4/20) KREX 5 hears from the Emmons daughters.
