Ah…mother/daughter bonding. It’s a sweet thing to ponder and even sweeter when the fruits of that time together pay off for the rest of their lives. Well, that’s usually the case. This time? Maybe not so much.
Rachel Lynn Lehnardt, a 35-year-old divorced mother of five from Evans, Georgia. While her children, aged four to 16, were staying with their father, the 16-year-old daughter texted her and asked if she could come over and bring a few friends.
“Come on, let’s party,” her mother texted back. That’s just about the last seemingly innocent thing this story contains.
Nope. Her daughter’s little get-together turned into a full-fledged party and the debauchery flowed freely. That debauchery was overseen and partaken by dear mother. She allowed them all to drink alcohol and smoke marijuana.
One thing led to another, as they say, and mommy dearest was then in the midst of a game of naked Twister with the rest of the party-goers before breaking away from the game long enough to go have sex with an 18-year-old guy in the bathroom. Pretty twisted (no pun intended), wouldn’t you say? Well, it gets better/worse. She then decided it would be a good idea to return to the festivities, sex toys in hand, and then use them on herself in front of all teenage comers.
At some point, she was feeling pretty partied out and went to bed – around 3:30 am. She then awoke to find someone having sex with her. At first, she just assumed it was the 18-year-old guy from earlier coming back for some more. But it turns out that it was actually her 16-year-old daughter’s boyfriend – who was also 16 years old. Not only that, but it turns out it was with her precious daughter’s blessing. Why? Well, her daughter’s beau was sporting 10 inches of manhood and she felt guilty for not having sex with him. So, she decided to let him have a go at dear old mom instead.
All of the events of that day/night came to light when Ms. Lehnardt confided in her Alcoholics Anonymous sponsor – and confided a lot. The problem? AA’s own Understanding Anonymity handbook only states ‘anonymity provides protection for all members from identification as alcoholics.’ It doesn’t, however, guarantee anonymity for those who have committed crimes. Apparently ol’ Rachel hadn’t read it too carefully. That sponsor then, in turn, contacted the police.
Following all of this and the confession to her sponsor, Rachel Lehnardt was required to attend an emergency custody hearing in which she lost custody of all fiver of her children; four, six, eight, 10 and 16. She was arrested Saturday night and charged with two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and has since been released on $3,200 bond. She didn’t face charges of any other kind because the legal of consent in her area is 16.
The 16-year-old boy who jumped in bed with her didn’t face any charges either, because, according to Sheriff's spokesman Captain Steve Morris, said there was no evidence of a crime.
