A Georgia woman who decided she needed to stop drinking was arrested after telling her Alcoholics Anonymous sponsor the reason why. According to an arrest report, the sponsor went to the cops after Rachel Lenhardt confessed to allowing her 16-year-old daughter and her daughter's friends to party at her house, where she supplied weed and alcohol, joined a game of naked Twister, had sex with an 18-year-old, then played with her sex toys in front of the group. The 35-year-old, who lives in suburban Georgia, told the sponsor that because of the party, she had lost custody of the teen and another four children—ages 4, 6, 8, and 10—who were with their father that night, USA Today reports. Lenhardt was charged on Monday with contributing to the delinquency of a minor, reports Augusta Crime.

Lenhardt also told her sponsor that she woke up the night of the party to find her daughter's 16-year-old boyfriend having sex with her. He is not being charged because she "refuses to discuss the case," a police spokesman tells the New York Daily News. According to the arrest report, Lenhardt's sponsor said she was put in touch with her by a friend who went to the same sex-addiction group at a local church. A source tells the Daily News that Lenhardt, a former Sunday school teacher who was raised in the Mormon church, didn't start drinking until last fall when she separated from her husband, an Iraq vet who came back with PTSD and anger issues. "People who have never drunk a day in their life tend not to know how to handle their alcohol," the source says. (Read more Alcoholics Anonymous stories.)
