Cheerleader Sarah Jones, captain of the Cincinnati Bengals cheerleading squad, pleaded not guilty Monday morning to sexual abuse and other charges involving an affair with a high school senior.
Her trial was set for June 27, according to United Press International.
The Kentucky Enquirer first reported the not-guilty plea from Jones in Kenton Circuit Court before Judge Patricia Somme.
During the arraignment appearance, the judge reduced Jones' bond from $50,000 to $30,000, the Enquirer reported.
Jones, 26, head of the Cincinnati Ben-Gals, the NFL team's cheerleading squad, faces charges of sexual abuse and unlawful use of electronic devices for illegal activities after she allegedly had sex with a senior at Dixie Heights High School. Sarah Jones taught at the Edgewood, Ky., school before resigning in November.
If convicted of the charges, Sarah Jones faces up to five years in prison.
Her mother, Cheryl Jones, is also charged with evidence tampering in the case.
Charles Lester, Jr., an attorney representing the mother and daughter, said his clients are innocent of the charges.
Sarah has maintained her innocence, Lester wrote in a document asking the state to produce all evidence involved in the case, according to WCPO-TV in Cincinnati. The indictment of her mother is completely baseless. Cheryl Jones did not tamper with evidence.
