COVINGTON, KY (WAVE) - A small victory for the former pro football cheerleader and Kentucky high school teacher accused of having sex with an undergraduate student.

A court ruling will allow her to proceed with a defamation lawsuit against an online gossip website.

Sarah Jones was a Cincinnati Ben-Gal Cheerleader. Back in 2009, someone posted messages about her on the online gossip site suggesting she was having sex with the Bengal's football players and had sexually transmitted diseases.

She appeared on local radio defending herself, then last year Jones was charged with 1st degree sexual assault for allegedly having sex with a male student.

That case is still ongoing.

The defamation case will likely be held in 2012.
