Former cheerleader Sarah Jones is now being touted as the “female Sandusky.” Jones, who was a former NFL cheerleader with the Cincinnati Bengals, is now speaking out about this new derogatory title she has earned.
Former cheerleader Sarah Jones worked as a high school teacher in Kentucky and was accused of having sex with a 17-year-old student. This incident has earned her the title the "female Sandusky," in association with the former Penn State assistant football coach, who has recently been convicted of sexually assaulting 10 young boys.
"To read those things and not be able to comment, not be able to stick up for myself is not fair," former cheerleader Sarah Jones told ABC News "People don't know the real me. There's blogs and postings out there that I have slept with numerous people. I married my high school sweetheart... I just asked the general public to maybe hold their judgment a little bit longer until the truth comes out."
Speaking to ABC News could come back to haunt former cheerleader Sarah Jones as she was given a gag order saying she could not speak to the media about the lawsuit.
In April, the former one-time captain of the Cincinnati Ben-Gals cheerleading squad pleaded not guilty to charges of first-degree sexual abuse and unlawful use of electronic devices.
It has been alleged against former cheerleader Sarah Jones that she sent “steamy” texts to her student and later told him to deny everything about the incident.
Former cheerleader Sarah Jones is even going as far to say the boy was a student but “not my student” and ”he was a family friend and I am very close to his parents. Had it not been for their support it would be very difficult to get through this without them.”
