Sarah Jones, the ex-Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader and high school teacher who engaged in a sexual relationship with one of her students, is back in court where she’s giving details about how it came to be.
According to Radar Online, Jones is suing Nik Richie, the founder of TheDirty.com for $11 million, for posting two articles about her in 2009, that claimed she had sex with several football players and picked up a few STDs.
During the proceedings, Jones was questioned about the relationship with the then 17-year-old Cody York, at Dixie Heights High School in Kentucky.
“I saw him outside of school. In school, I never saw him,” Sarah, 28, testified on Monday about her then 17-year-old boyfriend. He never thought of me as a teacher.”
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, in the first trial texts messages were read into evidence where “Sarah told Cody she had been in love with him since he was 14 years old.”
Jones also talked about her abusive relationship with her ex-husband Nathan Wilbun, which she says brought her and York closer together.
She described her marriage as abusive, telling the jury that she was forced to sleep on the floor and that her husband regularly abused alcohol, cocaine and steroids according to ABC 9 in Cincinnati.
“I knew the entire time of our relationship we shouldn’t be together. I felt stuck,” Sarah explained. “I was nervous to leave him. He was very threatening.”
The former Bengals cheerleader was grilled by Richie’s lawyer for withholding information about her relationship with York at the start of the trial.
She said that she “never lied under oath and never had sex” with Cody in Kenton County, where the high school was located.
“I did not lure Cody to have sex with me,” Jones testified.
