Ex-NFL Cheerleader

Punished For Trying to Perform Oral Sex

The ex-NFL cheerleader who allegedly tried to perform oral sex on a 12-year-old boy back in February was finally sentenced ... and TMZ Sports has learned she's NOT going to prison.

Elizabeth Garner -- who cheered for the Tennessee Titans until 2009 -- was arrested in Tennessee back in March for allegedly following the 12-year-old to a bathroom during a party in February hosted by the boy's mother.

Garner allegedly then grabbed the boy's penis over his shorts ... and attempted to remove them in order to perform oral sex on him. According to police, the boy said Garner asked if he'd ever been with a woman. Garner later told police she thought the boy was someone else (a grown man).

Garner -- who is married -- was subsequently charged with aggravated sexual battery and solicitation of a minor for rape of a child, but those charges were reduced to a single felony charge of reckless endangerment.

Now, TMZ Sports has learned Garner pled no contest back in October and was sentenced to 18 months probation, during which she must stay away from the boy and his family. She also has to submit to drug testing and attend AA sessions twice a week.

If Garner keeps her nose clean, the D.A. tells us her case will be expunged.

Makes you wonder ... would the outcome have been different if she were a man?

Sounds like it is LEGAL now for a hot looking woman to pretty much rape a little boy. Crazy world we live in.

I wonder what would happen if she fingered or performed *********** on a 12 year old little girl if she'd get a long prison sentence and be labeled a pedophile for life, etc.

It absolutely would have been different. In addition, you'll never hear a feminist speak against that though. Women only want the same "rights" men have when it benefits them.

The answer to the last question is simple: if a man had done this he would have been charged with child molestation and attempted rape. Because that's what this woman did: she attempted to rape a boy. But because she's a woman and he's just a boy, she gets probation and a clean record. A man would be serving prison time and be on the sex offender registry.

This is where feminist equality has gotten us.

Oh hell no! This is disgusting. She should have to register as a sex offender for the rest of her life, not to mention--do jail time.

This kid either hadn't reached puberty or maybe he doesn't like females. In today's society who can be sure.
