PAWHUSKA, Okla. — 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 TV 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 in Pawhuska, about 100 miles northeast of Oklahoma City.

I'm just wondering what was in the lesson plan that would require the teacher (Sub) to do a cartwheel? Was it a PE class? I think it is inappropriate to do cartwheels in dress PERIOD.

What was it JOB said about women?

Good thing they dont allow them to see Saving private Ryan in school. Now looking at that violence does ruin the lifes of innocent children, and they say also non innocent children.

Ruin their lives? This was a high school class. If they are ruined because of a quick flash, I hold the parents accountable. How narrow are you Dawg? It's just no big deal. We weren't there so we have no idea if a cart when was in context. I'm sure it was well intentioned.
