Forget extreme vetting of people coming into the country... maybe we should take a closer look at who's teaching our kids! A 34 year old teacher in Oklahoma was arrested after performing a cartwheel in front of her students. No big deal, right? Well she wasn't wearing any underwear under her dress when she performed her acrobatics!
Turns out the teacher had a pretty lengthy arrest record too, involving run-ins with police over marijuana and METH! She faces charges on indecent exposure.
From The Smoking Gun:
Sponsler told police that she was “just dancing with the students” and "trying to be a cool teacher."
According to court records, Sponsler pleaded guilty in 2008 to marijuana possession, public intoxication, and possession of drug paraphernalia (for which she received a two-year deferred sentence, was fined $1100, and was ordered to perform 100 hours of community service). In December 2009, a judge ruled that Sponsler violated her probation, in part because she had not disclosed being questioned by police investigating an accused meth cook. Sponsler told cops that she had been present in the suspect’s home when he was manufacturing the drug, adding that the man was “careless when he cooks.”
In September 2011, Sponsler pleaded guilty to possession of methamphetamine and marijuana in the presence of a child and possession of drug paraphernalia. She was sentenced to a three-year deferred sentence. As part of that plea deal, prosecutors dropped a burglary charge against Sponsler, who is pictured below in a mug shot snapped yesterday.
