Alcoholic Single Mother Sentenced To Six Years Probation Over Unruly Teen Party

Rachel Lehnardt, a 36-year-old American mother, has been fined $600 and sentenced to six years probation for allowing her 16-year-old daughter and friends drink alcohol, smoke marijuana and play naked Twister in her home.

According to Daily Mail, the mother of five was sentenced under the First Offender Act and was ordered to comply with mandatory drug and alcohol testing and treatment.

Lehnardt and the minors  played “naked Twister” in the living room, police sources say. She then had sex with an 18-year-old boy in the bathroom while the others continued to play Twister. She also used sex toys in front of the teenagers and allowed them to smoke marijuana and drink alcohol at the party. The single mother claimed that she woke to find her daughter’s 16-year-old boyfriend raping her.

She lost custody of her five children, when her daughter’s paternal grandparents learned about the party. But the 16-year-old took to Twitter days after Lehnardt’s arrest to defend her mother’s actions.

“Everyone makes mistakes,” she wrote, adding that the boy was not her boyfriend, as previously reported and claimed by Lehnardt’s lawyer.

Lehnardt, in a statement issued through her lawyer, Shawn Hammond,  defended her actions.

The statement said, “Mrs. Lehnardt acknowledges that due to recent alcohol abuse she engaged in several acts of inappropriate conduct. Although, many of the allegations are exaggerated, she is extremely remorseful for what she allowed to occur in her presence and is obtaining professional and pastoral counseling to ensure that this conduct is never repeated.”

The statement added that Lehnardt had been a life-long follower of the Mormon church and had never touched a drop of alcohol before her split from her husband, James.

According to Hammond, the one time Sunday school teacher did not throw the party for the teenagers on the weekend in question or provide them with drugs.

He said, “Mrs. Lehnardt has recommitted herself to her faith and her family. She is hopeful that her children, members of her faith and others will learn from her poor example as to just how easy it is for people to exercise such extremely poor judgment while intoxicated.”
