- Lacey Sponsler pleaded guilty Monday to assault after the charge was reduced from indecent exposure
- The teacher was wearing a dress with no underwear when she did a cartwheel in front of a choir class
- A student recorded the incident on a cell phone and told police that she saw Sponsler’s ‘vagina open and close, as her legs were in the air’
A former substitute teacher in Oklahoma who exposed herself to students when she did a cartwheel while wearing a long skirt but no underwear has pleaded guilty to a reduced charge.
Lacey Sponsler pleaded guilty Monday to assault after the charge was reduced from indecent exposure.
She was given a two year suspended sentence and can’t teach for two years. She will not have to register as a sex offender.
Sponsler declined comment. Defense attorney Nathan Milner told KTUL that Sponsler believes the incident was ‘blown out of proportion’ and is glad the case is over.
Sponsler was charged in February after allegedly performing a cartwheel in which she exposed herself during a high school choir class January 31 in Pawhuska, about 100 miles northeast of Oklahoma City.
The 34-year-old educator was wearing a long dress at the time of the incident, but she didn’t have on undergarments, causing her ‘to expose herself to the students in the class’.
A 17-year-old Pawhuska High School student recorded the incident on a cell phone using the Snapchat app, according to a probable cause affidavit.
