Cincinnati Bengals cheerleading captain Sarah Jones has been arrested and charged for having sex with one of her high school students at Dixie Heights High School in Edgewood, Kentucky.
Jones, 26, had resigned from the school in November of 2011. She taught ninth grade English there for five years.
The Daily Mail reports that Jones faces a first-degree sexual abuse charge and a charge of unlawful use of electronic means to induce a minor to engage in sexual or other prohibited acts. Both charges carry up to five years in prison.
Jones’ mother, Cheryl Jones, is also being charged with tampering in the case. Cheryl is a principal at the Twenhofel Middle School in Independence, Kentucky, which is in the same school district as her daughter's former school.
Their lawyer, Charles Lester Jr., toldThe Cincinnati Enquirer: "Sarah has maintained her innocence. The indictment of her mother is completely baseless."
In 2009, Jones made headlines when photos of her appeared on TheDirty.com, with allegations that she had sex in her classroom and had STDs.
Jones asked the website to take down the photos, but more content appeared, claiming she had sex with Bengals players.
She sued TheDirty.com and was awarded an $11 million, but the case is in appeal.
