A Georgia mother, who let her 16-year-old teenage daughter and her friends smoke marijuana, drink alcohol, and engaged in a game of ‘naked’ Twister, has managed to elude prison time.

The Daily Mail reported that 36-year-old Rachel Lehnardt has been sentenced to one year of probation and is required to pay a penalty of $100 for each count she faced with contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Overall, under the First Offender Act, she will be required to serve a total of six years probation and to pay $600. Lehnhardt must also submit to random drug and alcohol testing.

In the state of Georgia, first-time offenders can be slapped with a prison sentence of up to one year.

The mother-of-five was arrested in April 2015 for throwing a party where she reportedly had sex with an 18-year-old, used sex toys in front of the attendees, and claimed that she woke up to being raped by a 16-year-old.

When her teenager’s paternal grandparents found out about the incident, all five children were taken out of Lehnhardt’s custody.

Just a few days after the party, the woman went to an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting where she was paired with a sponsor.

She informed her sponsor about why she decided to come to a meeting, and included details of her divorce, the out of control party, and then ultimately losing her children.

The sponsor immediately alerted law enforcement that Lehnardt permitted her 16-year-old daughter and her friends to drink and smoked weed while her other kids were with their father.

She had also admitted to engaging in a game of naked Twister with them and proceeded to have sex with an 18-year-old in the bathroom.

Afterward, she allegedly told her sponsor that she was still ‘horny,’ so she decided to use sex toys on herself in front of the young partygoers

Finally, Lehnardt claimed she was sleeping in her bedroom when she woke to find her daughter’s boyfriend, who is also 16, raping her.

After her arrest last year, her daughter jumped to her defense in a series of Twitter posts.

The teen also denied previous reports that the boy was her boyfriend. Lehnardt had defended her actions in a statement made to the Augusta Crime by her attorney Shawn Hammond.

‘Mrs. Lehnardt acknowledges that due to recent alcohol abuse she engaged in several acts of inappropriate conduct,” Hammond said.

“Although, many of the allegations have been exaggerated, she is 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 read.
