Cheerleading Coach in Violation

Paradise ex-cheerleader coach sentenced

By ROGER H. AYLWORTH - Staff Writer

OROVILLE -- A former cheerleader coach was sentenced to 90 days in jail and four years probation, and was also sternly warned any violation of her probation will send her to state prison and force her to register as a sex offender.

Thursday Butte County Superior Court Judge Steven Howell sentenced Toni Rae Allexy, 39, of Paradise, to four years in prison, suspended on the condition she follow a lengthy list of probation requirements.

The sentence followed a plea bargain that allowed Allexy to plead no contest to a single felony charge of abusing or endangering the health of a child, in exchange for having other charges dropped, including one that she fondled a drunk 14-year-old boy.

The case stems from an Oct. 20, 2007, party in her home for two 14-year-old boys and two 13-year-old girls. During the party Allexy reportedly provided alcohol to the boys, who became drunk. And after becoming drunk herself, she drove the youngsters to their homes, allegedly fondling one along the way.

Thursday two of the victims and their mothers spoke to the court, urging the judge to make sure Allexy could never hurt any other children.

The mother of one of the girls said Allexy, who coached her daughter's Paradise Junior Football League cheerleading squad, "took trust and respect and used it to endanger the life of my daughter."

The girl's mother said, "If Toni does not have to register as a sex offender she will be able to hurt other children."

target of the fondling episode, said after he came forward with the charge, "everyone wanted to fight me or called me a liar."

He claimed he had to be hospitalized once after being beaten severely by five individuals unknown to him. He also said he has had to seek medical treatment for depression.

Each of the victims and their mothers complained Allexy continues to publicly deny she did anything wrong beyond driving while intoxicated.

Deputy district attorney Lynda Hunt underscored that point, saying Allexy continues to attribute all her actions "to nothing more than poor judgment. She continues to blame the kids for her current situation and calls them liars."

Beyond that, according to Hunt, Allexy told a police investigator that boys in the schools use a vulgar reference to her, which means they want to have sex with her.

"So here is this 39-year-old mom who believes young boys find her sexually attractive," said Hunt.

She urged the judge to send Allexy to prison for a 90-day psychiatric evaluation.

"I think Miss Allexy is in great need of a wake-up call and this might be just what she needs," said Hunt.

Robert Marshall, Allexy's attorney, argued the defendant is already in a residential treatment substance abuse program and the doctors there could provide the judge with any psychiatric evaluation he might need.

In the end the judge did not require the prison psychiatric evaluation and he didn't immediately require Allexy register as a sex offender.

He said he had accepted the plea bargain because, given the defendant's lack of criminal history and her previous service to the community, he had always felt this would be probation case.

Judge Howell continued, "I can see no situation in the future where she would be accepted as a youth leader in any respect."

He also made a specific finding "this offense was committed with the intent that the defendant receive sexual gratification."

He ordered that if the defendant failed to comply with any probation conditions, she would go to prison for the four years and she would have to register as a sex offender.

Allexy, who occasionally used a tissue to blot tears, repeatedly told the judge she understood his directions.

Howell ordered her report for her jail time on Sept. 30, the day after she was to complete her in-patient program in a Redding facility.

On the question of her not acknowledging her culpability in the case, her attorney said in his experience denial often is part of an alcohol abuser's makeup. He suggested that could change as she completed the various treatment programs and classes mandated as part of her probation.

So tell me why you would like your children to be in the athletic departments of the local public school? Where were these kids parents? Why do parents allow people, they don't know well enough, to be with their children unattended? Are we supposed to blindly trust the government schools to select a competent and moral person to lead the children of tomorrow? Parents wake up! YOU choose who will influence your children.

I agree the question begs where were the parents in the situation when the children was at this person's house- but why does this have to be an example of "the evils" of public schools in general?!

Children can participate in athletic programs without going to a coach's house and get drunk! I'm sorry but it upsets me to see something that is generally isolated used to attack an educational choice that so many parents have to make. Why do parents of children in public schools have to be put down so much by the homeschooling community?

Do you realize how hurtful these sretches of the imagination are to people who might be reading? Do you realize when you attack public schools in general that you are also attacking the character of every Christian that works in public schools too? The character of every honest, moral person who works within public schools? Is that what Jesus is really "calling" you to do?

I love you sis but enough is enough.

A warning from one mother to another about the direction the government has taken America's children is most certainly not a blow to the teachers as a whole.

I know there are great teachers out there. But why take the risk of a child being in that environment in hopes that they'll get one or two great teachers in a 12 year educational span?

I don't see it as a knock against the parents, but a caution. I would think that there are more critics of homeschooling than there are of public education.

We're not trying to shut down the government schools, yet they are doing everything they can to shut down the opportunity for our homes to be an educational choice for our own children.

Who is attacking whom here? Did Jesus also warn us not to receive instruction from the world? Did he not chase the thieves from the church building? Did he not call the religious leaders of his time liars?

He was definitely meek, but he was also firm. He preached firmly and the people in his time rejected his teaching then as well. He said to 'forbid them not' when talking about teaching children. Yet the gov't schools do forbid the name of Jesus in their schools.

If Jesus were walking here on earth today I do believe that he would be speaking to the Christian parents about where HIS little children were spending every day mon-fri.

Proverbs 19:27, "Cease, my son, to hear the instruction that causeth to err from the words of knowledge."

Also consider Proverbs chapter 1.
He warns us to not walk in the way with them and then says that if you DO go with them then he will V. 31, "Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices." Sounds harsh, but it's Bible.

Dear Wendy~

You asked "but why does this have to be an example of "the evils" of public schools in general?! "

The greater issue is, "Why is it NOT an example of the evils of the government schools? Why would you be so defensive about a system that continually has this type of problem within its walls? I was going to say that if it were a government office, you would want someone to hold those adults accountable and talk about the evils of that person's office (but then I remembered that Bill Clinton was impeached for doing evils in the Oval Office and was allowed to stay on to end his Presidential term)...

I am appalled as a parent that you would see these as "stretches of the imagination". Stretches of whose imaginations? This entire blog post, except for a paragraph, is the news report of what a sexually-charged mother/teacher did to a couple of her students. This is not a prefabricated situation made up by homeschoolers to discredit the government school system and put it into a bad light. I find it absurd to cast mention of this in entirety on the homeschool community at large to bring up, or even onto Lisa, just because she homeschools.

As far as I can see, the parents of these children and members of the community at large are also disgusted by this woman's actions, so why would the "homeschooling factor" even enter into this? You didn't discredit the public school moms opinons of this woman or this situation.

As it is the truth, and not a fabrication, I believe it needs to be looked at as it should be: without bias. It *IS* a government-run, public (read:NON-RELIGIOUS, no, that is not true, they allow the Muslim faith to be taught- I mean, anti-Chrisitan) entity. Whether people who work there or attend there are Christians or not should not enter into this conversation. Is this an entity that God would have sent Jesus into as a child? Is this the learning environment Jesus died for children to be placed into by their parents? If it is legal to keep your children home and educate them in the Lord, why in the world would any Bible-believing parent exclude such sinful behaviour at any level and allow their child to be a part of a godless (read: Government, public, non Christian, entity that silences God Himself) government system?

Here is some food for thought: I had not given any thought to sending my delightful little 3 year old daughter off to any school. I was a first-time Mom, and I was having too much fun with her at home. When I was asked, "Where will she be going to kindergarten?", I was flabbergasted. I had not thought about it.

DO PARENTS GIVE IT THOUGHT?

Did you pray about it?? When it came time to send your child "off to school", did you pray and seek the Word and come to the conclusion that your child belongs in the humanistic, sexually-stimulated, anti-God atmosphere that is today's public school system? Or did you, as most parents who were raised in the government schools themselves, just say, "Little Johnny is 4. Time to enroll him in Kindergarten."?

If we want to bring the fact into this conversation that there are Christians there in the system, then let's apply the Christian's base to that: the Bible. Are we really to be separate from the world? Are we really to bring every thought captive to Christ? Are we really to seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness?

I think that parents are mad because they KNOW how bad the system is, and it would take a far greater commitment than they are willing to make to remove that child and bring them home and put up with what that child has spent days and years learning and take it all back and teach them God's way and His Word.

But, Wendy, I do not know you. I am sure you are a wonderful mother and you love your child/ren. This statement is only a reflection on you as far as it is true. If it is untrue, then it is no reflection on you. If it is true, then that is between you and the God who gave you your children to train up in Him.

Just please don't blame the homeschool community because the government schools are not a Godly place to train children. They aren't, and they are never going to be. Even if there are small glimpses of a Christian teacher saying some little minute something. It cannot compare to the filth these Christian children have to walk in and endure and try to avoid all day.

Blessings in Him~
