Jones’ son, Gordon, was among the 11 men killed aboard the Deepwater Horizon, but he’s also a lawyer involved in the case. He’s “somewhat mystified” that all the talk involving the government’s criminal claims against BP, the rig’s operator, and Transocean, its owner, have been about fines for pollution crimes.
