COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A former Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader says posts on a gossip website she is suing for defamation were so devastating that she considered suicide and doesn't want others hurt.
Sarah Jones told jurors in her lawsuit retrial in Covington, Ky., that the posts were false and malicious. Jones says website operator Nik Richie gained financially from her downfall.
Jones is suing for damages over posts made in 2009 to the Scottsdale, Ariz.-based website, The posts alleged she had sex with every Bengals player and probably had sexually transmitted diseases.
An earlier trial resulted in a hung jury.
Richie testified he had no malice toward Jones and isn't required to fact-check posts.
The posts weren't related her to the former high school teacher's 2012 guilty plea to charges she had sex with an underage ex-student.
