In a complete waste of tax dollars, Sarah Jones seen in this 20-picture gallery, pleaded guilty to sexual misconduct and custodial interference in place of more serious charges as part of a plea agreement.
Jones, also a former teacher at Dixie Heights High School, was in a romantic relationship with a student when the boy was 17.
The 17 year-old student wanted the relationship and his parents supported him, but Jones avoided jail time and will not have to register as a sex offender as she was sentenced to five years of diversion.
Some cases can be “diverted” out of the criminal justice system. Criminal charges are normally dropped when a defendant successfully completes a diversion program. Diversion gives defendants a chance to escape the stigma of a criminal conviction.
Jones said the relationship began in 2011 and that the two had sex, that she sent him sexually explicit text messages and lied about the relationship to police.
The teen had been in Jones’ freshman English class in 2008, and she was his peer tutor in 2010 and 2011.
