Donna Lou Sanders, 46, was a special education teacher and wife of the assistant principle of Magnolia High School in Magnolia, Arkansas, when she was arrested and charged with two counts of accomplice to rape, four counts of third-degree sexual assault, and six counts of permitting abuse of a minor. She was charged after an investigation determined she allegedly took a 12-year-old girl and 13-year-old girl to a motel so they could sex with underaged boys and a 22-year-old man they met through Facebook.

According to the reports, Sanders also took her own daughter to the motels, provided alcohol to the minors, and sometimes drove the minors around in her car while they engaged in sex in the back seat of her car.

On January 29, 2009, Sanders pleaded guilty to five counts of permitting abuse of a minor and was sentenced to 50 years in prison, 10 years for each count. She will be eligible for parole in eight years.
