Sarah Jones, the ex Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader who admitted to having sex with one of her 17 year old students, is rumored to be getting a shot at reality television.
The highly publicized case drew the attention of Jersey Shore producers, who have reportedly
approached the former Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader, 27, with an offer to appear in a reality show about her relationship with her former high school student, Cody York, who is now 18.
However, her defense attorney Eric Deters dispelled these claims, stating that the report is false and that Sarah Jones is not in talks with TV producers about getting a reality show.
Jones, who has received a lot of media attention since pleading guilty to having sexual relations with a minor, will never be able to work as a cheerleader or teacher again. But her new career opportunities in television have prompted journalists to wonder whether or not she is being rewarded for breaking the law. She has also drawn some criticisms for attempting to capitalize on a crime. According to media sources, Jones is being paid for every appearance she makes on camera, and has recently offered a paid interview for Dateline, where she discussed how her past actions affected her family and career.
The ex cheerleader had originally pleaded not guilty, but changed her stance earlier
this month, in an attempt to avoid jail time. The initial charges brought against her were "first-degree sexual abuse and unlawful use of electronic means to induce a minor to engage in sexual or other prohibited acts," for which she could have faced up to 10 years of imprisonment.
Jones worked at Dixie Heights High School in Crestview Hills, Kentucky, last year, where she had a sexual encounter with her current boyfriend, who was only 17 at the time. "I began a romantic relationship while he was a student and I was in a position of authority. Our romantic relationship included voluminous phone calls and text messages. I sent sexually explicit text messages to (the victim) when he was a student. I had sexual contact including sexual intercourse with (the student) in Kenton County, Kentucky, while he was a student and I was a teacher", said Jones in her confession.
