An ex-NFL cheerleader turned teacher is getting a reality television show after pleading guilty to sleeping with a minor.
Sarah Jones, formerly a cheerleader for the Cincinnati Bengals, had an affair with one of her 17-year-old high school students and has supposedly been in talks with television executives about having her own show.

According to a source for RadarOnline.com, 495 Productions, the creators of "Jersey Shore," approached Jones, whose show is scheduled to air on the Oxygen channel.
"A lot of people are going to be outraged I imagine when they find out she's getting a show,'" said RadarOnline's source. "She is basically being rewarded for breaking the law! She's totally cashing in on her crime, and I'm pretty sure that if it was a 27-year-old man that had pleaded guilty to having sex with his 17-year-old female student he wouldn't have been given a TV show!"
The 27-year-old pleaded guilty on Oct. 8 to the charge of having sex with a minor.
The affair took place with a former student while Jones was teaching at Dixie Heights High School in Kentucky.
Jones took a plea agreement with prosecutors at the Kenton County Circuit Court in Covington, Kentucky which had her admit to the crime of sexual misconduct.
"I began a romantic relationship while he was a student and I was in a position of authority," Jones admitted in court.
The two first met when the boy was in Jone's English class in 2008. Their relationship started in early 2011 when the student was only 17. The two first exchanged text messages, which eventually lead to sex. Jones originally lied to the police about her involvement with the student who graduated this year, but is now opening up due to her arranged plea agreement to waive harsher punishments.
Jones will not receive jail time or have to register as a sex offender but will have to report to a probation officer with five years of diversion.
The plea agreement was sought by the prosecutors who had difficulty dealing with the now 18-year old boy and his family, who sided with Jones.
"We feel that it is a just and it is a fair result," said prosecutor Sara Farmer. "It's certainly difficult when a victim and his family don't cooperate by not providing information, but it makes our case a lot harder when they're actually proactive for a defendant, and in this case, the family was more than supportive of the Jones (family). They were proactive for them."
Jones resigned from her position at the school in November 2011 and was indicted earlier this March.
