(WSCR) According to a report, a member of the Bengals’ cheerleading squad who was also a Cincinnati-area high school teacher has been arrested and charged with having sex with one of her students.
Sarah Jones, a Ben-Gals cheerleader, has reportedly been indicted on first-degree sexual abuse and unlawful use of electronic means to induce a minor to engage in sexual or other prohibited acts.
Both charges facing Jones are felonies that carry sentences of up to five years in prison.
The report indicates Sarah’s mother, Cheryl Jones, who is a principal at a different school in the Cincinnati area, was indicted on a charge of tampering with physical evidence in her daughter’s case. That is also a felony punishable by up to five years in prison.
The Joneses released a statement from their attorney declaring their innocence.
“Sarah has maintained her innocence. The indictment of her mother is completely baseless,” the statement added.
