On Nov. 27, 2013, the Sherwood Police Department Criminal Investigation Division received a referral from the Arkansas Child Abuse Hotline containing allegations of a sexual assault by Andrea Clevenger, 34, Sherwood, on a male juvenile, who is under 14.

After an investigation, detectives sought warrants for Clevenger through the Pulaski County Prosecuting Attorney’s office that would charge 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 prosecutor’s office approved the affidavits and the Sherwood District Court issued those warrants on Jan. 13.

On Jan. 14, Clevenger surrendered to the Court, represented by her attorney, and she was released on bond, with GPS monitoring.
