A woman has been sentenced to probation and not jail after being charged with sexual battery and solicitation of a minor for child rape.
Former Tennessee Titans cheerleader Elizabeth Garner was accused of following a 12-year-old boy into a bathroom, fondling his penis and offering him oral sex, according to Mail Online.
According to police, the married Nashville woman, was at a party in February when she tried to seduce the boy. The boy told police that Garner asked him whether he'd 'ever been with a woman before she tried to pull down his pants. He got away from the bathroom and told his mother what took place and the mother reported the incident to police.
TMZ.com reported that the 42-year-old Garner was sentenced to 18 months probation and avoided jail time. TMZ Sports found out that Garner pled no contest last month and as part of her sentence she must stay away from the boy and his family. She also has to submit to drug testing and attend AA sessions twice a week.
After being reported, Garner had apparently told detectives the alleged assault was just a misunderstanding, “that she was drunk that evening and she got the boy confused with a man” who was also at the residence.
“That's just absolutely no excuse for sexual assaulting a child,” said officer Kyle Evans, according to Mail Online.
“If you can't tell the difference between a 12-year-old and an adult then there are problems.”
