COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) -
The Ben-Gal cheerleading captain and former Dixie Heights High School teacher who is accused of having sex with one of her underage students was back in court Monday.
The last time Sarah Jones and her mother Cheryl Jones were in court they asked the judge to raise their bond from $15,000 to $50,000 each. That was if they would be allowed to have contact with the alleged victim's family. Judge Patricia Summe was not going to allow that to happen.
"I want to be really clear that we're changing the money but the money, if you remember was not important last time, what you wanted was the contact changed and I told you I wasn't going to do that. So, certainly sometimes in these cases the amount does go down," said Judge Summe.
Sarah Jones' bond went down to $10,000 and she was required to remain on electronic monitoring. She is not allowed to text on her cell phone and is not allowed to have contact with the alleged victim or his family. Her mother, the principal at Twenhoffel Middle School in Independence, had her bond reduced to $2,500 and was taken off electronic monitoring.
Also brought up in court was that the discovery presented to the defense from the prosecution involved cell phone records and large amounts of forensic computer evidence.
"We filed over 9,000 pages of discovery and the Commonwealth is confident of its case and we look forward to the trial date," said Sara Farmer, an Assistant Commonwealth Attorney from Jefferson County. She is prosecuting the case because the Kenton County Commonwealth Attorney Rob Sanders has a conflict of interest with the Jones' family attorney, Eric Deters. He has sued Sanders in the past. Farmer says this is her specialty.
"I am in the Domestic Violence and Child Abuse Unit and I prosecute child sexual abuse cases in Louisville," said Farmer.
Sarah Jones requested to be taken off the electronic monitoring but it was denied. It is an electronic box which is applied to a subject's ankle to track where they go. "It's not unusual not take off the box in this case," said Lisa Wells, a Kentucky Criminal Defense Attorney. "It's a very typical request because ankle monitors are a pain. I mean, they're difficult if you try to interview for a job or a photo shoot or something like that."
"What is unusual about this is the situation with the contact with the victim. In cases like this it's almost never granted. In fact, I don't ever remember a case where it was granted," says Former Hamilton County Judge and Prosecutor Mike Allen on Jones' initial request a few weeks ago to allow the two families to have contact.
Sarah Jones, Cheryl Jones and their attorney Charles Lester, Jr., have not commented. The trial is still set for June 27.
