Sarah Jones, a former NFL Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader, came out with a statement against allegations that she sexually abused a student and unlawfully used electronic devices to make a minor engage in sexual activities, according to ABC News

Jones, 27, is a former high school teacher in Kenton County, KY. In light of the sex scandal, critics have called her a "female Sandusky," referring to Jerry Sandusky, the former Penn State coach convicted of serial child molestation. Even against the will of her lawyers and those that suggested she not speak about her case until her arraignment, Jones spoke up to defend herself. 

"I read on a blog that I was 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," Jones said exclusively to ABC News. "People don't know the real me. There's blogs and postings out there that I have slept with numerous people...I just asked the general public to maybe hold their judgment a little bit longer until the truth comes out."

Jones' lawyer, Eric Deters, told the station WCPO that there is no legal evidence proving that the alleged sexual relations occurred. He filed a motion to dismiss all charge. Good Morning America reports that prosecutors asked a judge on July 30 to order Jones to stop talking publicly, especially to the media, about the charges against her.  

Jones' mother, Cheryl,  a middle school principle in the same school district, is also accused of meddling with evidence that has a direct connection to her daughter's case. In April, both pleaded guilty to the accusations.

Sarah could face up to five years in prison if convicted, the NY Daily News reported.
