Looks like Alex Jones was preparing for the worst as he sat on trial against the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre.
The “Infowars” host has transferred his $3 million Austin, Texas estate to his wife, Erika Wulff Jones, according to public property records.
On August 5, the controversial conspiracy theorist was ordered by a Texas jury to pay more than $45 million to the parents of one of the victims of the 2012 school shooting that killed 20 children and six adults.
The ruling came a day after Jones was also ordered to cough up $4.1 million in compensatory damages for claiming that the Newtown, Conn. school shooting was a hoax, designed to increase support for gun control.
Andino Reynal, Jone’s lawyer, had requested the penalty be under $300,000. “You’ve already sent a message. A message for the first time to a talk show host, to all talk show hosts, that their standard of care has to change,” said Reynal.
Jones had testified that any amount he owed over $2 million would “sink” Infowars’ parent company. However, a plaintiff-hired economist estimated Jones and his company were worth as much as $270 million, and that he withdrew $62 million for himself last year as he faced default judgments in lawsuits.
In the past year, he has been getting his finances in order, including his real estate assets.
Last month, as Jones faced mounting legal trouble, he filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Meanwhile, he transferred property over to his wife.
It is unclear how he plans to pay for the amount ordered. The Post has reached out for comment.
What we do know is that Jones has an expansive portfolio in the city of Austin. And the latest court ruling isn’t exactly going to keep him from living the luxe life.
The 58-year-old conservative broadcaster was recently spotted in Omaha, Nebraska staying at four-star hotel, dining at the pricey 801 Chophouse restaurant downtown, and driving around with body guards for optimal protection, according to Daily Mail.
Jones purchased a four bedroom, five bathroom estate back in 2015 for undisclosed amount. But it was last asking $2,275,000.
Built in 2006, the Spanish villa style home spans over 5,400 square feet and situated on over an acre of land overlooking Barton Creek Greenbelt.

In 1998, Alex Jones purchased a four-bedroom, two-bathroom home in Austin that he appears to still be hanging onto.

Because it was last listed almost 25 years ago, interior photos are scarce.
Meanwhile, Jones has already sold off several other properties around the Austin area for a significant price.
In 2011, he sold off a five-bedroom home in the Rivercrest area for $1.2 million, according to Realtor.com.
He also sold a 7,000 square-foot mansion in the upscale West Lake Hills neighborhood back in 2007, dubbed a “masterpiece.” It was last on the market back in 2016 for $5.5 million.
