Local doctor at center of lawsuit agrees to give up medical license

By  | 

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KUSA)- A Colorado doctor who is accused in a lawsuit of using his own sperm to artificially inseminate multiple women, has voluntarily given up his medical license.

The new development comes just a few days after we first introduced you to Dr. Paul Brennan Jones.

On Friday, the Grand Junction doctor agreed to relinquish his medical license to the Colorado Medical Board after just renewing it in May.

The lawsuit, which was filed on Monday, October 28th, involves Maia Emmons-Boring and her family.

They allege that Dr. Jones used his own sperm to artificially inseminate Maia's mother.

They say the result was Maia, who was born in 1980, and her sister Tahnee, born in 1985.

The family wants Dr. Jones to agree to give his DNA.

"I mean, if he would give his DNA it could clear everything up," said Maia Emmons-Boring.

Reporter Chris Vanderveen spoke with Jones at his Grand Junction home in October. When asked if he would give a DNA sample, Jones replied, "No."

When asked by the reporter why not, Jones said, "Because I don't want to have any incriminating evidence against me."

In a report provided by the Colorado Medical Board on Friday, Jones denied using "his own sperm to impregnate multiple patients."

He also denied his practice "included artificial insemination."

It is a claim Maia's mother, Cheryl Emmons, told us earlier this year is simply not true.

"What he did was wrong, and it just breaks my heart because I thought the world of him," said Cheryl Emmons.

Once again, our sister station KUSA reached out to Jones' attorneys for comment, but did not get a reply.

There are at least eight other people who, thanks to Ancestry.com's DNA analysis, now believe they too could be related to Dr. Jones.
