A Georgia mom is in some hot water after admitting to hosting a teen party at her home that included the mom providing alcohol and drugs to the teens, and having sex with at least two of them, The Augusta Chronicle is reporting.
Rachel Lynn Lehnardt, 35, allegedly told her Alcoholics Anonymous sponsor over coffee about the party at her home; the sponsor then took that information to police.
Police say that the Georgia mom was home alone while her five children were with their father when her 16-year-old daughter texted her, asking if she and some friends could come to her (Lehnardt’s) house to “party.” She agreed, and allegedly allowed the teens to drink alcohol and smoke marijuana at her house.
She also admitted to playing “naked Twister” with the teens, and had sex with two of them: an 18-year-old and a 16-year-old, who happened to be her daughter’s boyfriend. She also allegedly showed pornographic pictures to the teens, including showing photos of herself and her daughter’s boyfriend having sex to her daughter.
She also allegedly masturbated in front of the teens before inviting them to take the party outside to a hot tub out back, according to WAGT(Augusta).
The Georgia mom is apparently seeking help for her behavior problems, attending both Alcoholics Anonymous and a sexual deviant support group at a local church. Lehnardt says she is a sexual deviant who is addicted to pornography.
The party cost the mom custody of her children, ages four, six, eight, 10, and 16, according to WJBF (Augusta).
It may also cost her her freedom. She was arrested and booked into the Columbia County Detention Center before posting a $3,200 bond. She’s facing two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
According to Onecle, a person convicted of a first offense of contributing to the delinquency of a minor under Georgia law could face a fine of up to $1,000, or 12 months imprisonment, or both.
Although some parents believe that allowing teens to party and drink in their homes with adults present is a safer alternative to unsupervised teen parties, The Partnership for Drug-Free Kids disagrees.
“Parents should be aware that supplying alcohol to minors actually increases, rather than decreases the risk for continued drinking in the teenage years and leads to subsequent problem drinking later in life.”
