CINCINNATI (January 21, 2013)—Sarah Jones, 27, a former Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader who had sex with her underage student with whom she’s now in a relationship is about to begin another court battle Tuesday.
The northern Kentucky woman was convicted three months ago of having sex with her 17-year-old student.
Now she’s suing a controversial Arizona-based gossip website and its owner over lewd comments made about her online long before any accusations involving the teenager surfaced.
The trial of the lawsuit begins Tuesday with jury selection in Covington, Ky., just across the Ohio River from Cincinnati.
Jones is seeking $11 million in damages.
If she wins, an attorney for the website owner says other websites like Facebook, YouTube and Twitter could be bombarded by lawsuits over material posted by their users.
