Rachel Lehnardt, 35, was busted on two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor in connection with the recent pot/booze/naked Twister party at her home in Evans, an Augusta suburb.
Lehnardt, pictured above, has five children, ranging in age from four to 16, according to a Columbia County Sheriff’s Office report. Investigators say that Lehnardt shared details of the house party with her Alcoholics Anonymous sponsor, who then contacted cops.
As detailed in the sheriff’s report, Lehnardt’s children were with their father one evening when her oldest child, a 16-year-old girl, texted her to ask if she and some friends could come over “to party.” Lehnardt reportedly replied, “Come on, let’s party.”
Lehnardt allegedly allowed her daughter and the teen’s friends to smoke marijuana and consume alcohol in the residence. Additionally, Lehnardt “divulged that the group of minors and her played naked twister in the living room.” At one point, while the others continued to play Twister, Lehnardt “had sex with an 18 yr old in the bathroom.”
As recounted by the AA sponsor, Lehnardt said that she was still “horny” after the bathroom sex, “so she brought her sex toys out in the living room and began to pentrate herself vaginally and anally in front of the group.” Lehnardt and the teens subsequently “got in her hot tub naked where ‘the party continued,’” cops reported.
Lehnardt also told the sponsor that she was later asleep in her bed at 3:30 AM when she “felt someone having sex with her.” Lehnardt first “thought it was the 18 yr old from earlier,” but realized it was her daughter’s 16-year-old boyfriend.
Lehnardt, the sponsor told cops, said her daughter “felt guilty” that her boyfriend initiated sexual contact with her mother because “the 16 yr old was 10 inches long and huge” and she could not accommodate him. The sponsor added that Lehnardt disclosed that she had shared pornographic material with her daughter, including photos showing Lehnardt having sex with her current boyfriend.
Following her arrest Monday, Lehnardt, who works at a bridal shop, was booked into the Columbia County Detention Center, from which she was later released after posting $3200 bond.
Lehnardt, who is in the midst of divorcing her husband, an Iraq War veteran, lost custody of her children following an emergency court hearing last Monday. The hearing, which came a week before Lehnardt’s arrest, was scheduled after her estranged spouse learned about the teenage house party.
