Karma has finally found its way into the world of Jenelle Evans. While appearing in court today for her heroin possession/paraphernalia and assault charges, a judge ordered an on-the-spot drug test, which she failed. Marijuana was found in Jenelle’s system and she was arrested. She will spend the next 48 hours behind bars. According to RadarOnline, she will be released Wednesday morning at 9:30am.
As far the heroin and assault charges go, her lawyer Dustin Sullivan told RadarOnline,
“Jenelle pleaded guilty to possession of drug paraphernalia and all the other charges were dismissed.”
Jenelle was given 18 months unsupervised probation for her paraphernalia. She will presumably start probation after her release from jail on Wednesday.
The dropped charges include possession of a substance II drug, Percocet and assault against her estranged husband, Courtland Rogers. If you followed Courtland while he was still in jail, he revealed that this paraphernalia was, in fact, a glass rhinestone pipe. He was also in court today to watch his estranged wife face her charges.
Jenelle’s boyfriend Nathan Griffith accompanied her to court today (as seen in the above photo) and has remained fairly quiet on Twitter and Facebook, except for changing his profile and cover pictures from photos with Jenelle to photos of himself and his daughter! Trouble for the happy couple, perhaps?
Jenelle did not have the heroin possession charges dropped, however. According to the local news station WCET, Jenelle still faces charges of possession with intent to sell and distribute heroin. That case will be handled in superior court at a later date.
Jenelle added mugshot #11 to her collection today as well:
Author’s note: Little does this smiling criminal know that her failed in-court drug test will weigh heavily on her pending heroin charges and may prevent any chance of a plea deal. She will likely face the maximum sentence of 7 years behind bars for failing the drug test! This may also change her unsupervised probation to supervised probation when she is released Wednesday!
Oh and don’t forget, Season 5 of Teen Mom 2 is currently filming as we speak. MTV cameras were present at the courthouse this morning and caught all the drama on film! As you can see below, Jenelle is “miking” up her man for recording!
STAY TUNED FOR MORE DETAILS!
UPDATE: Nathan has dumped Jenelle. This screenshot was just posted on Twitter by user @jenelle_says who acquired the photo from one of Jenelle’s friends. Nathan said in the past if Jenelle is doing drugs, he will break up with her. I guess it’s good thing that they never bought that house!
Some people have expressed their opinions on our Twitter and on the blog about the conflicting reports regarding Jenelle’s heroin charges. I reached out to the blogger of Ashley’s Reality RoundUp, who spoke DIRECTLY with Jenelle’s lawyer, Dustin Sullivan, to get the details of Jenelle’s day in court. She posted the following: “…most of Jenelle’s drug charges stemming from the April 23 arrest (including the assault charges for smacking down husband Courtland Rogers, and possession of Percocets) were dropped. She still has to face the possession of heroin, and intent to sell/distribute heroin charges.” This blogger has been 100% accurate on her articles and we at TMJ use her as frequently as a source for our information! Read her complete post on Jenelle court day here. I was also informed by my Twitter spies that Jenelle now has more mug shots than Lindsay Lohan.
UPDATE 3: The previous update is now wrong. The blogger at Ashley’s Reality Roundup has since updated her blog with the same information below.
After trying to get a straight answer from other bloggers, I took it upon my self to get the story and personally contacted the Brunswick County Court to get the correct information. The officer I spoke with told me,
“Jenelle Lauren Evans WAS cleared of ALL heroin charges relating to her April arrest.”
So, there you have it. Karma did not actually come to fruition for this Teen Mom starlet. Not yet, at least. She is facing 18 months unsupervised probation for the rhinestone pipe that she had in her pocket at the time of her arrest. If she is arrested for ANY reason, she will face time.
I am absolutely baffled as to how she snuck her way out of ANY of this! She has had 10+ arrests in 3 years, MOST of which are drug related. She has 2 drug convictions on her record. If she was not famous, she would be facing 7+ years behind bars for her actions. She was arrested with a heroin pipe, bindles on her person and in HER car. I do not understand how she got away with any of it!
I personally believe that a judge or two was paid off by MTV so they can continue filming Season 5 of Teen Mom 2 and continue to promote the fake story line that she is better and no longer on drugs.
It is an utter disgrace to see such abuse of the justice system. And once again shows that she is NOT sober. And not getting better for her son.
