Judge Rejects Dinkel Plea Deal

(COVINGTON, KY) -- A Kenton County circuit court judge has rejected a plea deal for Jeni Lee Dinkel, the wife of former Cincinnati Bengal Tom Dinkel.

Dinkel is accused of having sex with a 15-year-old boy. She faces a third degree rape charge.

Dinkel, a former Hollywood make up artist, had accepted a plea deal in early June that included five years probation, that she register as a sex offender, that she not go near the victim or his family and that she could not publicize her story by selling it to any TV program, book, movie or radio broadcast.

Dinkel will be back in court for another hearing on July 16.
