Jerry Jones Sued for Sexual Assault
Jerry Jones and the Cowboys are being sued for sexual assault and alleged subsequent cover-up. In a lawsuit filed in Dallas late Monday night, Jana Weckerly says that over the course of the evening documented in a series of graphic tweets posted in early August, Jones rubbed and grabbed her without her permission multiple times and then had another perform oral sex on him in front of Weckerly.
The Ardmore, Oklahoma, woman also alleges the Cowboys made sure Jones' actions, which took place in 2009, did not become public and failed to monitor and control Jones properly.
