A former Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader and teacher who pleaded guilty to sexual abuse of a teen boy, is now engaged to him, her former student.

Sarah Jones, 26, plead guilty in October 2012 to sex abuse as a result of her relationship with Cody York, who was 17 when the couple started having sex.

On Thursday the couple posted photos on their Facebook pages announcing their engagement. Jones' attorney Eric Deters confirmed that couple was engaged.

Jones pleaded guilty last year for having sex with York when he was 17 years old. Photos on her Facebook page show the pair announcing their engagement.

Jones met York when she was a 9 th grade teacher at Dixie Heights High School.

"There's absolutely nothing prohibiting [the victim] and Sarah from being together," Deters told ABCNews.com affiliate WCPO-TV in Cincinnati.

Now 19, York is attending Northern Kentucky University according to his Facebook page. Jones is currently a paralegal for her attorney.

After pleading guilty, Jones was sentenced to five years probation and can never apply for another teaching position.
