Ben-Gal pleads not guilty to sex charge

The former cheerleader captain of Cincinnati Bengals and an ex-teacher, Sarah Jones has pleaded not guilty in student sex case

The former cheerleader captain of Cincinnati Bengals has come under a lot of scrutiny after a case emerged including her having sex with a minor, who was also her student. The woman involved in this case is Sarah Jones, who was also a high school teacher in a school in Kentucky. Not only has Sarah Jones come under investigation, but also her mother Cheryl Jones, who was a Principal at the same school where Sarah was teaching. The charge against Cheryl Jones is that she tampered with physical evidence in this case, to keep her daughter out of trouble.

Both Sarah and Cheryl Jones have pleaded not guilty to the charges, and the case is still ongoing. Sarah Jones is being charged with first-degree sexual abuse and unlawful use of electronic devices for illegal activities. If she is proven guilty, then she can end up in prison for up to 10 years. The first trial date has been set for the 27th of June.

Sarah Jones was indicted last week on charges that she was having a sexual relationship with a senior from the same school where she was teaching. The student involved in the case is a 16-year-old high school football player and according to reports, his family is supporting Sarah Jones in the case as he himself has denied of having an affair with her.

Even though the alleged victim's family is supporting Sarah Jones, the Jefferson County Assistant Commonwealth Attorney Sarah Farmer said that the state will still go ahead with the case against both Sarah and Cheryl Jones, since they have sufficient evidence and it was the state's responsibility to protect the students.

Sarah Jones relationship with the alleged victim lasted for around three months and during that time, she even used e-mails and text messages to entice and lure him. The forensic evidence against Sarah Jones was collected from her computer and telephone records. The court also ordered her and Cheryl Jones to avoid contact with the alleged victim and to disable the text messaging component of their phones.

Both Sarah and Cheryl Jones have hired a lawyer by the name of Charles T. Lester Jr., who issued a statement in which it was mentioned that both mother and daughter are innocent.
