A former Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader who had sex with her underage student and is now in a relationship with him is about to begin another court battle Tuesday.

Sarah Jones is a 27-year-old northern Kentucky woman who was convicted three months ago of having sex with her 17-year-old student.

She's suing a controversial Arizona-based gossip website and its owner over lewd comments made about her online long before any accusations involving the teenager surfaced.

The trial over the lawsuit begins Tuesday with jury selection in Covington, Ky., just across the Ohio River from Cincinnati.

Jones is seeking $11 million in damages.

If she wins, an attorney for the website owner says other websites like Facebook, YouTube and Twitter could be bombarded by lawsuits over material posted by their users.
