Former NFL cheerleader Sarah Jones has pleaded guilty to having sex with her 17-year-old former student while she was a teacher at a Kentucky high school.

Jones will NOT serve jail time as a result.

In a tearful admission in Kenton County Circuit Court in Covington, Ky., Sarah Jones, 27, pleaded guilty to sexual misconduct and custodial interference.

"I began a romantic relationship while he was a student and I was in a position of authority," Jones said, her voice cracking as family members wiped their tears.

The one-time Cincinnati Ben-Gal then detailed her dalliances with the boy.

Jones admitted that the two had sex, that she sent him sexually explicit text messages and lied about the relationship to police, beginning in February 2011.

The teen had been in Jones' freshman English class in 2008, and she was his peer tutor in 2010 and 2011 before he graduated at the age of 17 this year.

In accepting the plea agreement, Judge Patricia Summe granted prosecutors' recommendation to sentence Jones to five years of diversion but no jail time.

The "female Sandusky" won't have to register as a sex offender, either. The diversion requires Jones to report to a probation officer and undergo drug tests.

Prosecutors said they were willing to make the deal because the teen, now 18, and his family were uncooperative with them and on Jones' side.
