(NYDAILYNEWS) — A former South Carolina preschool teacher who threw booze- and pot-fueled sex parties for local teens was spared jail time and sentenced to probation instead.

Audrey B. Grabarkiewicz, 46, will avoid a prison cell as long as she stays out of trouble during a three year period and serves 120 hours of community service, a judge ruled on Thursday.

Grabarkiewicz, a mom of three, and another former teacher, Sarah Jane Lindsay, were busted in September 2010 after police discovered they were hosting summertime sex gatherings for middle school and high school students, the Spartanburg Herald-Journal reported.

Prosecutors said the middle-aged pair plied the teens with booze and pot and had sex with several of them.
