An ex-Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader has won a defamation lawsuit against a gossip website.
According to reports, Sarah Jones was awarded $338,000 in federal court today. The website she sued is TheDirty.com.
A jury took two days to return its unanimous verdict in Jones’ favor.
Jones sued a few years ago after the site published comments alleging she has sexually transmitted diseases and that she is promiscuous.
Last October, Jones pleaded guilty to misdemeanor sexual misconduct after being found to be in a relationship with a student at the Edgewood, Ky. school where she was a teacher.
Jones was seen holding hands with the student when leaving the courtroom, and he posted online they are engaged to be married.
Jones has not confirmed the claim.
