(Covington) - A defamation lawsuit involving a gossip website and a former Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader convicted of having sex with a teenage student is to be retried this week in northern Kentucky. Sarah Jones is the same former cheerleader who was convicted of having sex with a student when she taught at Dixie Heights High School.
Jones is seeking $11 million over two 2009 posts on thedirty.com. The posts said she had sex with every Bengals player and probably had two sexually transmitted diseases. Jones says the posts were untrue and caused her severe mental anguish. She hopes to shutdown the website.
The first trial ended when jurors could not reach a verdict.
