Hot 20-something ex Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader plus a 17-year-old student mixed with a plethora of sexual advances= dream scenario being taken advantage of. Apparently.

Former Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader and Kentucky high school teacher Sarah Jones pleaded guilty to reduced sexual misconduct charges related to the 27-year-old’s sexual relationship with a former student.

Today, Jones, not for the first time it would appear, opened up on the relationship:

“I began a romantic relationship while he was a student and I was in a position of authority,” Jones said in court (via the Associated Press).

To add more spice to the story in 2009, Jones sued TheDirty.com founder Nik Richie for posting a picture of Jones that claimed she had contracted a sexually transmitted disease and was having sex with Bengals players. She was rewarded an $11 million default judgement for defamation.

Each time I hear of a case of a teacher ”taking advantage” of their position of power by initiating a sexual relationship with a student I immediately think of this piece of dialogue from South Park which pretty much sums up the whole issue perfectly:

Kyle: It’s the kindergarten teacher, Ms. Stephenson.
Police Sergeant: The blonde?
Kyle: Yeah.
Policeman #1: Some young boy is having sex with Ms. Stephenson?
Kyle: Yes.
Policeman #1: Nice.
Police Sergeant: Nice.
Kyle: What? No, you don’t understand…
Policeman #1: You sure they’ve had sex?
Kyle: Yeah!
Policeman #2: Has she performed oral sex on him?
Kyle: I think so.
Policeman #2: Nice.
Policeman #1: Nice!
Policeman #2: [whispers] Nicccce.
Police Sergeant: So, wait. What’s the crime?
Policeman #1: The crime is she isn’t doing it with me.
[cops laugh]
Kyle: Hey! He’s totally underage. She’s taking advantage of him!
Police Sergeant: You’re right. We’re sorry. This is serious. We need to track this student down and
[pauses]
Police Sergeant: give him his “Luckiest Boy in America” medal right away.
[cops laugh heartily]

Williams After Beating Carlos Quintana To Win The WBO Welterweight Title In 2008

Boxer Paul Williams has been seriously injured in a motorcycle accident near Atlanta, resulting in him being paralysed from the waist down.

Williams apparently swerved to avoid contact with a vehicle Sunday and lost control of his motorcycle.

The 30-year-old Williams, who was scheduled to fight Mexican star and super-welterweight world champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, Sept. 15 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, has no feeling below his waist and will undergo surgery on Wednesday.

His manager George Peterson told The Associated Press:

From the waist down, he has absolutely no movement. He’s in very good spirits, though. He still believes he’s going to fight again.

The question was posed to Peterson regarding the continuation of Williams’ career and the possibility of ever fighting again to which he responded:

Our thoughts aren’t there right now. He’s undergoing this procedure, and we’re hoping he can get back on his feet after that. That’s all we’re hoping for.

Williams(41-2 27 KOs’)won his first major welterweight title in July 2007 with a decision over Antonio Margarito. He struggled to land fights with the sport’s biggest stars because of his pronounced size advantages and high-volume punching rate.

This news comes on the back of the announcement on Sunday that five-time world champion Johnny “La Vida Loca” Tapia died age 45.
