The “Female Sandusky” denies sexual abuse allegations
ARTICLE BY miami PUBLISHED Aug 2, 2012
Having been accused of sexually abusing one student, former high school teacher and former Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader Sarah Jones, popularly referred to as the “Female Sandusky”, recently fought back against her detractors, denying the sexual abuse allegations pegged to be her doing.
Accused of sexually abusing a student with the unlawful means of utilizing electronic communication channels in engaging a minor into sexual activity, the former Cincinnati Ben-Gals cheerleader captain voiced her sentiments over the allegations during an interview with ABC News.
“I read on blogs that I’m the female Jerry Sandusky. To read those things and not be able to comment, not be able to stick up for myself is not fair,” says Jones.
The 26 year old was then teaching at the Dixie Heights High School last fall, when she was found accused to have been engaging in sexual acts with a 17 year old student.
Complications regarding the case ensued when Jones’ mother, who is a middle school principal of the same district, was found to have been tampering with the evidence pertaining to the case.
During her case’s arraignment, both of the Joneses pleaded “not guilty”, and has since been garnering the support of countless supporters, including, oddly enough, the support of the family of the said alleged sexual abuse victim.
“The hardest thing has been having not only me go through it, but to have my mom go through it with me. It’s almost kind of a guilty feeling that she is even involved in this because what has happened to her is not fair. My goal is for her charges to be dismissed,” Jones comments during the interview.
The Jones’ lawyer is currently filing for sanctions against the case’s prosecution camp, for allegedly saying that Jones herself allegedly told the victim to “deny everything” via SMS. The prosecution is also noted to have said that the volley of text messages between Jones and the victim were “steamy.”
In the interview, Jones notes that the alleged victim was a student, but not hers, and is also quoted to say that “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.”
