No jail time for mom who threw naked Twister party for teens
Last year, then 35-year-old Rachel Lynn Lehnardt was arrested for throwing an ill-advised party for her then 16-year-old daughter. Lehnardt played the role of cool mom by allowing her daughter and her friends to drink and smoke weed under her drunken supervision. That doesn’t sound too crazy on its own, but Lehnardt took things over the line when she allegedly played a game of naked Twister with her daughter’s underage friends. In addition, Lehnardt took a bubble bath with multiple teen party guests. Just terrible decisions all around.
Lehnardt also had sex with an 18-year-old and was allegedly sexually assaulted by her daughter’s 16-year-old boyfriend while she was passed out.
The Daily Mail reported that, in the wake of the disastrous party, Lehnardt lost custody of her five children and started attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. Lehnardt then told her AA sponsor about the party, who in turn snitched to the police. According to a statement from her lawyer issued to Augusta Crime, the Evans, Georgia, resident was a Mormon who completely abstained from alcohol until her divorce in 2014.
According to WJBF, Lehnardt’s sentence consists of 12 months probation and $100 fine for each count of contributing delinquency of a minor, which comes to a grand total of six years probation and a $600 fine. She’s also required to undergo mandatory drug testing and treatment.
“Mrs. Lehnardt has recommitted herself to her faith and her family,” Lehnardt’s lawyer said, following her arrest.
