Sarah Jones, the former Bengals cheerleader who had sex with one of her high school students, allegedly landed a deal for a own reality show. The creators of Jersey Shore, 495 Productions, will supposedly air a show about Jones and her teenage boyfriend on Oxygen, if Radar Online sources are accurate.
The scandal surrounding the cheerleader-turned-teacher’s affair with student Cody York may turn into a very large payday for Jones. As previously reported on The Inquisitr, the former Kentucky educator opened up about her relationship with York during a Dateline NBC interview. Sarah Jones admitted that having an intimate relationship was wrong during the interview and noted that she felt guilty about what happened.
The Radar Online source had this to say about the reality show deal:
“A lot of people are going to be outraged I imagine, when they find out she’s getting a show. 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.”
Sarah Jones and Cody York left court holding hands earlier this month. The former teacher’s plea deal sentenced her to five year of diversion, which is a form of probation. As a result of the deal, she will not have to register as a sex offender. York is now 18 and is expected to be featured prominently in the alleged reality show.
The supposed reality show is not the only paycheck which may be coming Jones’ way. She filed an $11 million lawsuit against Nik Richie, of Couples Therapy fame, for libel, defamation, and invasion of privacy. His website reportedly published an article on The Dirty, referring to her as the “dirty Bengals cheerleader.”
