While the Cincinnati Bengals appear to have cleaned up their act off the field – have they even had an arrest this offseason? – this Cheerleader-allegedly-hooking-up-with-a-student story is the most fascinating thing happening with the franchise right now. The latest: When Sarah Jones, the cheerleader, appeared in court Monday, she had some odd support – from the “victim’s relatives.”
Summe ordered the daughter and mother to have no contact with the underage victim and his family despite the fact that the victim’s relatives attended the arraignment in support of the Joneses. The two families sat in the same pew in the courtroom’s gallery as they waited for the case to be called.
Not something you see everyday in a story like this. And it appears Sarah Jones – who was the Bengals cheerleader captain – was married last year. For a month. Then she moved out. And she waited seven more months to annul the marriage. I’ll let you read whether or not the marriage was consummated.
The indictment states the alleged sexual relationship with the high school student took place between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31. Sarah Jones resigned Nov. 29 as an English teacher from Dixie Heights in Edgewood.
Sarah Jones’ amended petition for annulment was filed on March 21. It states she worked as a secretary at Eric Deters Law Office in Independence, but a person who answered the office phone last week said Sarah Jones was not employed at the business.
Sarah Jones married Wilburn on July 16, according to public records, but Sarah Jones moved out of her husband’s residence on Aug. 24.
“ … the marriage was not consummated by sexual intercourse,” according to the petition for annulment of marriage filed in Kenton Circuit Court.
