Local Mother Shocked by Rape Allegations Against 33-Year-Old Woman

Andrea Clevenger is also accused of engaging children in sexually explicit conduct for use in a visual or print medium.
SHERWOOD, AR -- A local woman is out on bond after surrendering to police on a sexual assault charge involving a 13-year-old boy.

"It's sickening, just absolutely disgusting and especially that age," said a local mother who wished to remain anonymous.

A warrant was issued on Monday for the arrest of Andrea Clevenger, 33. Police say she turned herself in this morning and was released with a GPS-enabled ankle bracelet.

The Sherwood Police Department says it was notified of the allegations against Clevenger on Nov. 27 from the Arkansas Child Abuse Hotline
Clevenger is charged with one count of rape and one count of engaging children in sexually explicit conduct for use in a visual or print medium.

According to the arrest affidavit, the boy told police the sexual assaults happened at least three times, once on the sofa inside Clevenger's home and twice inside her vehicle.

This mother who wished to remain anonymous told us her daughter has mutual friends with Clevenger's daughter.

"Taking advantage, absolutely, I mean, I think the little boy and his state of mind, being 12, 13, 14, how ever old he was, he probably wasn't in the right state of mind to even know if it's right or wrong, honestly," she said.

Clevenger was one of the moms featured on TLC's "Cheer Perfection," a reality TV show about a team of young competitive cheerleaders at Cheer Time Revolution in Sherwood.

TLC released the following statement:

"TLC doesn’t have a comment; Regarding the series, the network made the decision a few months ago not to order more episodes, and we do not air the show in repeats."
