Jerry Jones SUED, Dallas Cowboys Owner Accused Of Sexual Harassment

Dallas Cowboys Owner Sued For Sexual Harassment

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is being sued over sexual harassment allegations, the Dallas Morning News reported on Tuesday.

According to the News, Jana Weckerly, a former exotic dancer, was forced to perform sexual acts against her will. Deadspin reported last week that Weckerly had hired a lawyer and was considering suing. Weckerly's lawyer told Deadspin that she was traumatized by the incident.

Deadspin obtained a copy of the complaint. In it, Weckerly alleges that Jones "forcibly rubbed and/or grabbed" her breasts and made her touch his genitals. The lawsuit also claims that Jones tried to intimidate her into keeping the incident under wraps "or else."

Photos of Jones and two other women taken by Weckerly circulated the internet earlier this summer after they were posted on Twitter and picked up by sports gossip website Terez Owens.

The women in the photos told TMZ that "there was a lot of alcohol involved" that night. They said that they were worried Jones might blame them for the leak.

Jones told the Dallas Morning News in August that the photos were being "misrepresented."
