Sarah Jones, the former Ben-Gal and high school teacher who had a sexual relationship with a student, will now have to wear an electronic monitoring device after violating her probation.

Jones avoided jail time when she struck a plea deal in October. As part of the plea deal, she was not allowed to leave Kentucky without the permission of her parole officer.

According to Kenton County court documents, the parole officer was made aware that Jones was in Cincinnati on Jan. 29, 2013 to do a radio interview on 700 WLW. The interview was related to Jones' involvement in the sex charges against her and her recent civil case against the website,

Jones is permitted to be in Ohio for work and school purposes only. She currently works for her attorney, Eric Deters, and attends classes at the University of Cincinnati.

"Sarah Jones' appearance on WLW was during work hours at my request, I'm her boss, about her libel case against, and it's work purpose was to refute stories in the aftermath of the verdict. It's my opinion it was not a probation violation. She was not given a hearing. She accepted the monitor because she can still go where she is allowed." Deters said in an e-mail to FOX19.

Deters wrote a letter to Commonwealth Attorney Rob Sanders claiming Sanders is "out to get her."

Jones' case against was declared a mistrial after the jury could not reach a verdict.
