Cheerleader Sarah Jones: Nancy Grace, Dan Abrams Clash Over Sex Scandal

  on April 04 2012 7:33 AM

Sarah Jones, a Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader, appeared in court on Monday and pleaded not guilty for sexually abusing a teenager at Dixie Heights High School in Edgewood, Kentucky.  

Her mother and middle school principal, Cherly Jones, who reportedly attempted to cover up the crime has also pleaded not guilty to charges of tampering with the physical evidence in the case.

On Tuesday, HLN host Nancy Grace appeared on ABC's Good Morning America show with ABC's legal analyst Dan Abrams to discuss the case of child abuse involving Jones and her mother.

The former Dancing with the Star competitor referred to Jones' alleged charges as a felony and sex crime against an underage boy.

Grace said that the teacher was getting off easy because the alleged charges against her did not include intercourse with the 16-year-old-boy.             

It's something less than that including electronic purveyance of sex images, Huffington Post reported quoting Grace.  

Abrams told Grace: Yeah but Nancy is victims' rights advocate should also care how the victim feels in this particular case and his mother when they do not want to move forward.

Grace responding to Abrams previous comment said that: Number one, Dan Abrams, I am a crime victim, a tangential victim of murder. So don't you sitting up on Park Avenue tell me, a crime victim, about what a victims' advocate should or should not do. Number one.

Are you no longer a victims' advocate, Nancy? Because I thought you were. I thought you positioned yourself as victims' advocate. So if you don't, I'm wrong, Abrams asked Grace.  

The two legal minds argued on the fact that the alleged victim's family does not want the court to move forward with the case.
