SHERWOOD (KATV News) — Andrea Clevenger, 34, of Sherwood surrendered to police on Tuesday for felony charges of sexual assault of a boy.
Clevenger is on the reality show, Cheer Perfection, a TLC show about a team of competitive cheerleaders from Sherwood.
A spokesperson with the Sherwood Police Department says they received a referral from the Arkansas Child Abuse Hotline on November 27, 2013, containing allegations of a sexual assault.
Subsequent to that investigation, detectives sought warrants for Clevenger through the Office of the Prosecuting Attorney of Pulaski County, charging her with one count of rape, a "Y" felony, and one count of engaging children in sexually explicit conduct for use in a visual or print medium, a "B" felony.
The male victim is reportedly under 14 years old.
The prosecutor's office approved the affidavits and the Sherwood District Court issued those warrants on January 13, 2014. On January 14, 2014, Clevenger surrendered to the Court, represented by her attorney, and she was released on bond, with GPS monitoring.
