After almost four weeks of trial, Sandy Hook and F.B.C. $965 million in damages were awarded to the investigator’s eight family members. . However, questions remain as to whether plaintiffs will receive the money and as to Jones’ actual value. His lawyers have already announced that he will appeal.

Jones’s Infowars parent company, Free Speech Systems, has filed for bankruptcy and its financials are being kept confidential. Jones has already won $49 million against the parents of Jesse Lewis, one of the children killed in the shooting, by a Texas jury in a similar defamation trial in the state in August. However, a Texas judge will consider whether Jones can invoke a state law limiting damages to $750,000 on October 20.

Jones’ Net Worth

At the Texas trial, economists who testified for the parents estimated Jones’ worth at $135 million to $270 million. Those figures weren’t confirmed by Jones, who once told a jury in Texas that she was “bankrupt.”Her bankruptcy records have been hidden from the federal court while his trial is pending.

Jones was admonished by Texas Judge Maya Guerra Gamble and was also advised not to mention his bankruptcy filing on the witness stand by Connecticut Superior Court Judge Barbara Bellis, who oversaw the Waterbury trial. warned. Alex Jones has been siphoning money from parent company Free Speech Systems for years, especially after losing three lawsuits for defamation in 2021, said financial forensic expert Bernard Francis Pettingill. Jr. said in Texas court in August.

Pettingill said Jones withdrew $65 million in September 2021 after Gamble ruled he lost a lawsuit against Sandy Hook’s family for failing to comply with a court order.

Pettingill did not have access to the financial records that Jones was supposed to file as part of the lawsuit.
Instead, Pettingill looked at what was publicly available, he said. Because Free Speech Systems is a privately held company, Mr. Jones does not need to file in Texas, he said. He estimates Jones earns about $70 million a year from Infowars and the various products the company offers, including supplements and books.

Pettingill said Jones had a $54 million loan on one of his businesses, making his net worth appear less than it actually is. He hasn’t suffered any financial loss since being “de-platformed,” and was banned from several social media companies in 2018 for hate speech.

Jones’ earnings from Sandy Hook denial

Attorney Chris Mattei representing the Sandy Hook families contended during last Thursday’s closing arguments that Jones purposely didn’t turn over requested financial documents because he didn’t want the plaintiffs to have hard evidence that he financially profited every time he mentioned Sandy Hook in the past decade with increased viewers and increased sales.

Mattei showed graphs indicating that every time Jones featured the shooting on his Infowars platform, his social media engagement with viewers jumped — in some cases by more than 50 percent while at the same time, “these families were drowning in grief.”

Mattei asked the jury to imagine how much one person would be owed for a single lie and multiply that by 550 million — the number of Jones’ viewers who saw his claims about the shooting from 2012 to 2018 on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube alone. Each of the 15 plaintiffs in the suit should earn that number, he argued.

“Your job is to make sure he understands the wreckage he has caused,” Mattei said to the jury. “Because you know damn well he doesn’t get it right now.”

In this second of three similar trials, the eight families and FBI agent argued Jones inspired his followers to harass them online and in person with his repeated claims that they were “crisis actors” who staged the massacre.

Mattei put each family on the stand to paint a heart-wrenching picture of their grief at the loss of a loved one while being targeted by Sandy Hook deniers who likely got their information from Jones’ broadcasts.
