A Former Bengals Cheerleader Doesn't Want to Be Referred to As the "Female Jerry Sandusky"

A Former Bengals Cheerleader Doesn't Want to Be Referred to As the "Female Jerry Sandusky"

Former Bengals cheerleader Sarah Jones is most definitely not the "female Jerry Sandusky." Sure, she allegedly slept with an underage student earlier this year when she was a high school teacher and now faces some jail time for doing it. But, really, it's unfair to put her name in the same sentence as Sandusky's. And yet, she just pointed out that she's been compared with the ex-Penn State football coach recently.

"I read on a blog that I was the female Jerry Sandusky," she told ABC News. "To read those things and not be able to comment, not be able to stick up for myself, is not fair."

She also says that the boy she allegedly had sex with was not her student and that she's actually close friends with his family. "He was a family friend and I am very close to his parents," she said. "Had it not been for their support, it would be very difficult to get through this without them."

Did she do a bad thing? It sure sounds like it. But, does she have a point? Yeah. So, chill with the Sandusky comparison. There is none.
