A 35-year-old Georgia mother has lost custody of her five children after being arrested for allegedly hosting a party for her teenage daughter and partaking of booze, pot, sex, a hot tub and naked Twister.
Rachel Lehnardt was charged with two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor for the party at her home in Evans, an Augusta suburb. She was arrested Monday after her new Alcoholics Anonymous sponsor alerted the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office on Saturday following a meeting with Lehnardt, according to the investigation report.
The sponsor said Lehnardt, who is divorcing her husband, an Iraq war veteran, told her she had lost custody of the children — ages 4, 6, 8, 10 and 16 — at an emergency hearing April 6 after he learned about the recent party. The sheriff’s report did not indicate when it occurred.
The children were with their father one night when the 16-year-old daughter texted her mother to ask if she and some friends could come over “to party,” according to the sponsor’s account.
“Come on, let’s party,” Lehnardt replied.
The teens drank alcohol and smoked marijuana, Lehnardt said she joined them playing naked Twister, her sponsor told investigators. She then had sex in the bathroom with an 18-year-old boy, the report said.
The sponsor said Lenhardt later recounted waking up at 3:30 a.m. to discover her daughter’s 16-year-old boyfriend having sex with her.
He is not facing charges because “there is no evidence of rape” because Lehnardt “refuses to discuss the case,” Capt. Steve Morris told the New York Daily News.
Lehnardt, who works in an Augusta bridal shop, had been attending a sexual-addiction workshop at her local Mormon church, the sponsor added.
She was released after posting a $3,200 bond.
Anna Broom has been on welfare since she was 19-years-old since she was deemed too overweight to work. In total, she has collected over $149,000 in benefits but says that simply isn’t enough as she now wants taxpayers to pay for a dream wedding costing $15,000. Broom claims that being a bride is a “basic human right” and that she is entitled to a “‘traditional English wedding and party in a castle.”
The Daily Mail reports that Broom, from Kent in Southeast England, is requesting that her “dream wedding” be paid for as a “basic human right.” However, Broom isn’t requesting just any old wedding. Instead, the blushing bride says she wants a traditional English wedding complete with a party in a castle. Her request includes funds for the church ceremony, a designer dress, champagne and even a horse and carriage. In addition to the elaborate wedding, Broom also wants an extra $3,000 to cover a honeymoon in Mexico.
Broom says she is too overweight to work, but that she has a basic human right to be a bride and that means a large traditional wedding. Broom goes on to say that being a bride will increase the prospect of getting a job as it will boost her confidence.
“I deserve a fairy-tale church wedding and a party in a castle – but there’s no way I could afford it on benefits and I can’t work because I’m overweight. I’m stuck in a rut at the moment and can’t find the motivation to lose weight, but if I was getting married I know I’d slim down because all eyes would be on me.”
Anna says that she once held a job in a nursery when she was 16-years-old. However, she was overlooked for a secretarial spot by a “skinny blonde” so she left the position. She claims to have applied for a number of other jobs to no avail. At this point, instead of continuing her job search, Broom began binge-eating on sweets and became too overweight to find work. Since that point she has lived off of government assistance and has not looked for employment. However, she says that could all change if she were to get the dream wedding she desires. She would then have motivation to slim down and could then find a job.
However, many people across the web are not buying into Anna’s assumption that a wedding is a “basic human right” or that she will find motivation to work following the wedding.
What do you think of Anna Broom’s assumption that being a bride is a “basic human right”? Should the government foot the bill for her elaborate wedding in hopes of boosting the woman’s confidence which could lead to her landing a job? Or should Broom use her desire for the elaborate ceremonies as motivation to lose weight in order to find a job to pay for the traditional English wedding of her dreams?
KTUL reported that a woman found one of the men stumbling around Evergreen Apartments around 1 a.m., covered in blood. Police were called, and subsequent investigation discovered that the men had been drinking.
When the phone argument turned violent, the pair broke their beer bottles and stabbed each other. At one point during the fracas, one of the men smashed their bottle over the other’s head.
The seriousness of the injuries hasn’t been made public, nor is it yet clear whether police or either of the victims are planning to press charges.
The iPhone versus Android debate is a common trope in American culture. iPhone owners will often claim features such as a smoother interface, better-integrated features and higher build quality, while Android owners will point to things like cheaper prices, a more flexible operating system, and/or technical superiority in some models.
Android devices generally enjoy a larger marketshare, since the operating system is used by a wide range of phone makers. The iPhone however is frequently the most popular individual brand, particularly in countries like China and the U.S.
A 24-year-old woman has been arrested after police say she struck her boyfriend of two years in the head with a baseball bat, fracturing his skull, because she just didn’t want to be his girlfriend anymore.
Haley Fox and the alleged victim reportedly “met” on the internet a couple years ago. Just recently, the 26-year-old man decided to move from Alabama to Oregon to set up house with Fox.
When he arrived at Fox’s home Wednesday, she invited him to have a seat at a patio table decked out with candles, where she poured him a glass of wine. D’awwww!
Then, according to the victim, Fox requested that he close his eyes. When he did so, he said, she knocked him upside the back of the head with a baseball bat three times.
The man later told police that shortly after the presumably unprovoked attack, another woman appeared at the home. He could hear the two women talking, he said, saying words like “binding,” “him,” and “duct tape.” He told police he truly believed he was going to die.
The man somehow managed to convince Fox and her friend that he wouldn’t say a word about what happened if they would just drop him off at a hospital somewhere.
Fox reportedly admitted to cracking the guy’s skull, telling police she played softball from grades 4-11 and “knew how to hold a bat.” Fox also told police she knew “it only took seven pounds of force to break a human being’s neck.” She said she didn’t want to be his girlfriend anymore, so she decided to hurt him because batshit crazy.
Fox was arraigned on a charge of first-degree assault Friday, and bail was set at $100,000. She has since posted bail and has been released. The other woman, 26-year-old Jennifer Beaumont, has been interviewed by police, but is not facing charges at this time.
The victim suffered a fractured skull near his right eye and two lacerations to the head that required nine staples each. He was treated and released.
This bitch. This cheery, smiling, happy-looking bitch right here has been accused of ditching her disabled 21-year-old son in the forest, with nothing but a blanket and a bible, so she could toddle off and hang with her boyfriend in Maryland for a minute.
According to police, 41-year-old Nyia Parler wheeled her non-verbal, quadriplegic son, who also suffers from cerebral palsy, into a wooded area sometime last Monday. She took the man from his chair and laid him on the ground nearby. She then covered him with a blanket, placed a bible on his chest, and walked away. And there he remained, in the cold and rain, for five fucking days.
When the man failed to show up for his scheduled classes at the School of the Future, school officials attempted to reach Parler. When she didn’t answer, they contacted the man’s aunt. She, in turn, contacted Parler.
Parler, the bitch, lied to the woman, claiming her son was there in Maryland, safe and sound, with her. Stupid lying liar.
A mere 24 hours after ditching her child, Parler was all snuggled up with her boyfriend, updating her Facebook with cutesy shit like, “I’m so happy!”
Her son, who was found by a passerby Friday evening, was said to be suffering from dehydration and a cut to his back. It also appears as if there was some malnutrition and something wonky going on with his eyes. He is said to be listed in stable condition, and is surrounded by family.
Police quickly issued a warrant for Parler’s arrest. She is reportedly in a hospital somewhere in Maryland, for undisclosed reasons, and will be extradited upon release. (I have $5.00 that says she “attempted suicide” when she found out she was caught). Though she hasn’t been formally charged, she’s looking at charges of aggravated assault, reckless endangering, neglect of a care-dependent person, kidnapping, unlawful restraint and false imprisonment. According to the attached video, she may also be charged with attempted murder — I haven’t found anything in print to back that up, though. Another of her children, a 16-year-old boy, is now being cared for by relatives.
Her boyfriend is reportedly shocked — Parler apparently told him her son was in the care of social services.
Seven months after Ella Dawson says she was diagnosed with genital herpes, she remembers a young man at a college party offering her a sip of his beer. “Don’t worry,” she recalled him saying. “I don’t have herpes or anything.”
Dawson, 22, was just learning to shed the shame that came with her infection, which affects one in six Americans. She could already tell this sense of isolation was worse than any outbreak. So, she spoke up — and shared the tale in a Women’s Health essay, published this week:
‘That’s funny,’ I said, with as warm a smile as I could manage. ‘Yeah, that’s really funny. Because I have genital herpes.’ His face crumbled. Not because I grossed him out — I could practically see the wheels turning in his brain as he realized he’d made an ignorant joke at someone else’s expense. The guy started apologizing profusely.
Dawson, who graduated last year from Wesleyan University, didn’t take offense. Humor at the expense of people with STIs permeates popular culture, from Saturday Night Live’s Valtrex segment to Jennifer Lawrence casually joking about herpes.
But Dawson said she felt empowered talking bluntly about her affliction.
“I had seen in the flesh what a simple ‘I have herpes’ could do when said fearlessly, without shame,” she wrote. “Because when a real person — a woman you know and respect — casually mentions having herpes, it stops being a punchline and starts being someone’s reality.”
About 17 percent of people 14 to 49 in the U.S. have genital herpes caused by the HSV-2 infection, the CDC reports. There is enormous racial disparity, according to the most recent CDC data, with more than 40 percent of non-Hispanic black women diagnosed with the infection, compared to less than 20 percent of non-Hispanic white women. Condom use reduces but does not eliminate risk of infection. Skin-to-skin contact, even when no sores are present, can spread the virus.

Herpes, the infection, is not new—but the stigma is. Project Accept, an advocacy group, asserts on its Web site: “[Herpes] was merely a cold sore in an unusual place until the 1970s.”
Blame an antiviral marketing campaign, which sprung up shortly after America’s free love era, said Dr. Peter Anthony Leone, medical director of the North Carolina HIV/STD Prevention and Control Branch.
“Herpes was seen as this marker of being promiscuous or bad or evil,” he said. “But unless you’re in a mutually monogamous relationship with someone who has never had sex, you’re at risk.”
