Cheerleader Gets Probation for Following 12 Year-Old Boy Into Bathroom, Fondling Him, and Attempting Oral Sex

No prison, no sex offender registry, and now free to sexually assault any child she wants. What an iniquity to justice –to truth –to children. Please share on Facebook so no one allows their children around this woman…

“Former cheerleader for the NFL’s Tennessee Titans Elizabeth Garner has been sentenced to probation after attempting to sexually assault a 12-year-old boy earlier this year.

The incident took place in a bathroom of the boys’ parents’ home in February this year. Garner was arrested in March after she reportedly followed the child to the bathroom. Garner allegedly fondled the boy through his shorts and tried to take them off for oral sex.

The boy, whose name has not been released, reportedly said Garner asked him if he had ever been with a woman, which contradicted the statement she made later. Garner reportedly told police she was intoxicated at the time and thought the boy was an adult male who was also attending the party. Garner was released on $30,000 bail on the charges of aggravated sexual battery and solicitation of a minor for rape of a child. The charges have been reduced to reckless endangerment, a felony.

Garner refused a plea bargain in July, according to CBS News in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. In her scheduled court appearance on October 11, Garner entered a plea of no contest and was sentenced to 18 months of probation. Garner must also attend AA meetings twice a week and submit to periodic drug screening.

She has also been ordered to stay away from the boy she assaulted.

Garner was reportedly told if she adheres to the terms of her probation her record may be expunged. Had she fought the charges, Garner could have faced over eight years in prison for sexual assault of a child. It begs the question, of course, of whether or not she would get off so easily had she been a male and her victim a female child. Many see this as a case of unequal treatment for the same crime, and are speaking out on the matter online.

In spite of the debate, the sentence bypasses jail time for the former cheerleader, leaving her free to go about her life. Although she must maintain her distance from the child, Garner’s sentence is light when one considers the gravity of her offense. Assault on a child is one of the most egregious crimes in our society, and laws are in place to punish those deviants of society who see children as sexual objects. Why then, has Garner managed to walk free with a proverbial slap on the wrist?

Darkness To Light (D2L) reports that sexual abuse is “likely the most prevalent health problem children face with the most serious array of consequences.”D2L estimates one in 10 children will be the victims of sexual abuse before their 18th birthday.

Identified incidences of this crime have been declining, and there is no clear indication of what is fueling the fall. We can hope this is due to a lessening in the commission of child sexual abuse, but all we need to do to destroy that illusion is turn on the local news.

Garner joins a terrifying group of people who cannot control their urges and have some mental quirk that makes them see children as sexualized objects.

In many cases, even as light as her sentence is, garner should be required to register as a sex offender and adhere to the restrictions such a designation brings. Otherwise, how can anyone be certain the next boy she follows to the bathroom will tell? Probation for assaulting a 12-year-old boy with the option of a clean record afterwards is ludicrous and sends the wrong message to our children: Even if you tell, you may not see your abuser properly punished for obliterating your innocence.” ~Brandi Tasby

    I just learned she is 42 years-old and married. She was drunk and on drugs…the boy ran from the bathroom and told his mother.

  2. Shame on everyone who had a hand in letting this woman get away with this!!! I hope she get harassed everywhere she goes the rest of her life for being the perverted child sex offender that she IS!!! Makes me want to puke just thinking someone would defend her… must be perverts themselves!

    Well said, Melissa Lee. I felt nothing but relief and freedom when both my father and my mother died. But of course I was forced and pushed by family and friends into pretending grief. I’m sure this is a very common experience for us all.
    And this article again illustrates how women get away with sexually and physically assaulting children. And how the damage they cause is mostly laughed off.

    • Alethea says:

      If this were a man, who followed a 12 year old girl into the bathroom, he would be in jail and registered as a sex offender. If this were a man and a 12 year-old boy, would it have been dismissed as it has? NO.

      She “thought the boy was an adult male” bullshit.

      I had a male friend on FB ask what the boy’s response was (read: if he liked it, the woman should be excused).

      It doesn’t matter what the victim’s response is, the adult is OFF, WRONG, committing a criminal act. 12 Years old is still a child…psychologically, emotionally, morally and legally.

      This male friend then asked what the boy would say about it 20 years from now.

      I told him that twenty years from now, she will probably have sexually abused even more children, and much younger ones, maybe little girls….all because people like my friend think that what she did was just fine…

      This male friend is putting out the message that adults should be able to sexually assault children as long as the child likes it.

      His mentality is that if it is a good-looking woman with big breasts, it’s okay if she assaults a child.

      It’s absolutely disgusting how we let everyone but especially women do this. Women are every bit as vicious and sexually deviant as men are.

    “What a sense of relief when my birth father died” I can relate, Melissa Lee.

    • Jess says:

      I second this Nel, my parents have not died yet but I know how much relief and loss of terror I will feel when they do. I have gotten to the point where I don’t feel guilty about that anymore.

  5. PDD says:

    A disgusting comment from “Axixic”, a reader of the NY Daily News regarding this story:

    “A male child being fondled by an adult female is not the same as a female child being fondled by an adult male. Ask most men what they would have thought at age 12 if a woman this hot had hit on them. They would have loved it. Sex is not the same between boys and girls and men and women.”

    According to Axixic its perfectily ok for blonde-haired women in skirts to molest young boys, because “they would have loved it.” Thanks, Axixic, I really should feel differently about my skirt-wearing, blonde-haired mother’s molestation. I really should have loved it, not be devastated by it 40 yrs later…. Asshole….

    • PDD says:

      And, another reader, Kamikrazee Refudiator, blames the boy but not the woman:

      “Let’s not discount the possibility that the 12 year old was NOT completely passive in the “transaction”. If the woman was a little drunk and a little, well, lacking in self esteem, some honest adulation by a young man, well….. And, for the record, who is ratting her out?”

      Blame the child, because “he was NOT completely passive”. (so, children are to blame if they’re not passive). Exonerate the woman, because she was a little drunk and lacking in self esteem (women are weak, helpless, victims of their own fragile emotions).

      Blame a 12 yr old PDD for sexually abusing his poor helpless mother. I grew up with that shit. Asshole….

      Yeah, this triggers me a little….

    I remember two different male teachers that also molested me, my sixth grade teacher and a 7th grade shop teacher.. I was groomed by my birth father and then my step-father to find this kind of interaction to be normal and where I should go to get attention and love. So, happy to have them both dead and out of my life. What a sense of relief when my birth father died.. Now, I give voice to the little girl that had none… and help others to do the same. xoxo Melissa Lee
