Andrea Clevenger, a 34-year-old mother who appeared on TLC’s Cheer Perfection, turned herself in today to the Sherwood District Court in Arkansas. She is charged with one count of raping a 13-year-old boy and one count of “engaging children in sexually explicit conduct for use in visual or print medium.” Both are felonies.
The perverse details of Andrea’s crimes were detailed in an official affidavit from Detective Frank Spence. In the document, Detective Spence explained the Sherwood Police Department was alerted to Andrea’s alleged crimes in November 2013 when a call came into the Arkansas Child Abuse Hotline. The detective contacted the unnamed juvenile’s mother and was able to arrange for an interview. (Warning: Some sexually explicit language.)
The juvenile victim said he was at the (Clevenger) home when Clevenger began making advances toward him. The juvenile victim said Clevenger instructed him to sit on the couch in the common area of her residence and remove his pant, and he complied. The juvenile victim told me after he removed his pants at her direction she got “on top” of him, put his penis in her vagina and engaged in sexual intercourse with him.
During the initial interview, the juvenile victim — who is only identified as a 13-year-old male — said Andrea engaged him in oral sex during on two occasions in October 2013. She also sent him multimedia messages, which police later discovered to include “numerous images depicting females in various states of undress.” In return, the boy later confessed to sending her several images of his penis, which were later extracted by police from the boy’s phone records.
Andrea was initially called to the police station in Dec. 4, 2013, but declined to show under the advice of her lawyer.
The following day, the victim’s mother provided a written statement to police explaining she had confronted Andrea about their discovery. The victim’s mother said Andrea confessed and “vowed to enter a rehabilitation facility,” but added the boy “doesn’t act 13.”
After turning herself in today, the Arkansas Times reports Andrea was released on her own recognizance. She must wear an electronic ankle bracelet to monitor her location at all times.
Andrea was the Team Mom President for Cheer Time Revolution and had a sizable role on Cheer Perfection. Not known for being nice, she once criticized her daughter’s makeup by saying, “No one’s every going to marry you and you’re gonna live in a house full of cats.”
In a statement to Arkansas Online, a Cheer Time Revolution representative said “the person in question” hasn’t been involved with the gym for more than six months.
“Cheer Time Revolution officially has no comment on the private life of any person other than staff members as we do not control individuals lives.”
TLC hasn’t addressed the matter.
