Sarah Jones, the former Bengal Tigers cheerleader and high school teacher, who became infamous for having sex with her minor student is now engaged to him! WTF?
Jones, who is suing Nik Richie of The Dirty for alleged defamation and libel (because the truth hurts), became engaged to Cody York on the beach in Florida.
Sarah Jones was 27 when she admitted to having sex with the then 17-year-old York, who was a student at Dixie Height High School where she was a teacher.
Evidence at trial included newly released text messages between Jones and the teen that said she first fell in love with him when he walked into her freshman English classroom when he was 14. That’s pretty freaking sick.
Jones avoided jail time by pleading guilty to felony custodial interference and misdemeanor sexual misconduct for having sex with a student last October.
Sarah is now 28 and engaged to her former student, 19, and works as a part-time paralegal for her attorney Eric Deters.
Deters issued a statement about his client and employee, saying, “I fully support Sarah and Cody. And if they want to get married and live happily ever after or not, who knows? Nobody ever knows how marriage turns out. I wish them all the best.”
Sarah Jones vehemently denied the sexual allegations at first, slamming TheDirty.com for making her lose her job as a teacher and Bengal’s cheerleader. We imagine the “having sex with your student” caused that little issue instead of a gossip blogger.
Check out Sarah Jones’ innocent victim performance on Anderson Cooper with Nik Richie:
Jones’ defamation lawsuit against the website TheDirty.com ended in a mistrial in January, but will start again with a new trial in July. She is suing over two 2009 posts on Thedirty.com that said she had sex with every Bengals player and probably had two sexually transmitted diseases, which were supplied by an anonymous source.
She is suing the site for $11 million for two stories it posted about her in 2009.
If Jones’ lawsuit succeeds and is awarded a large sum of money, other websites including Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Amazon could be bombarded with lawsuits over material posted by their users.
Jones resigned as a teacher at Dixie Heights and from the Bengals cheer squad in late 2011 after four years with both jobs.
A January trial resulted in a hung jury. Federal Judge William Bertelsman set a July 8 retrial date in Jones’ lawsuit against the Scottsdale, Ariz.-based site and its operator, Nik Richie.
While Richie’s attorneys argue that Jones’ lawsuit is equivalent to someone suing Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg over a comment that someone else posted, Bertelsman previously ruled that the law was not meant for websites like Thedirty.com.
Who else thinks her lawsuit is a joke and should be tossed out by the judge? This woman basically molested a student. Come on!
