Sarah Jones, the former Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader who had a sexual relationship with her underage student, is reportedly engaged — to the former student. On Thursday, 19-year-old Cody York reportedly made the big announcement.
According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, York posted a photo on his Facebook page of the couple kissing on a beach with Jones wearing an engagement ring.
York was 17 and a senior in high school at the time he began his sexual relationship with Jones. She avoided jail time last October by pleading guilty and agreeing to never teach again or coach children.
To say that the past two years have been a roller coaster ride for the former Ben-Gal would be an epic understatement. As of last October, Jones said she and York were staying together but had yet to go on their first date. Her mother later said that she stood by the relationship, so it’s probably safe to assume mom is happy about the big news.
In February, Jones was ordered to wear an ankle monitor after she violated her probation by conducting a radio interview.
Do you think the fact that Jones and York are reportedly engaged excuses her for having sex with a minor? Personally, I still think the whole thing is twisted.
