Jenelle better hope her criminal case for charges of possession of drug paraphernalia and marijuana and breaking and entering doesn’t head to trial. If it does, she could be thrown behind bars for 8.5 months!

In October, Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans was arrested and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana and breaking and entering. Now, Jenelle is on the path to facing a criminal trial. Her first District Court Hearing date is set for April 14, which is when the court will decide if Jenelle’s case will be dismissed, sent to trial or entered into deferred prosecution. If her case does make it to trial, the judge and Jenelle’s attorney are obligated to inform her that she could face up 260 days in jail if found guilty!

On April 14, Jenelle and her attorney will attend the hearing to find out if the state’s motion to continue will be met. “I promise the state will ask for the continuance and I can almost promise that the judge will continue it,” Jenelle’s attorney tells HollyBaby.com exclusively. The only way the the motion may be denied is if the the officers and state’s witnesses don’t all show up, then Jenelle’s counsel can ask for the case to be dropped.

But if the case continues, Jenelle and her attorney will have to decide if they want to proceed to trial or enter into deferred prosecution.

And if Jenelle is found guilty of all three charges during the trial, “the highest sentence could be 120 days for the breaking and entering charge, 120 days for the paraphernalia and 20 days on marijuana,” the attorney tells. “260 days — technically that’s what she’s facing. The judge must tell her that and I must tell her that. It’s my job to tell her what she’s facing.”

Jenelle Evans gives up custody of her son Jace! Details here.

“But the reality is that even if the judge wanted to give [her] that, he couldn’t,” the attorney continues. “That [sentence] is for someone who had five or more convictions in their lifetime. She has zero, so she’s not looking at anything near that [time].”

“If we were to take it to trial, the trial would be based on all three charges,” the attorney adds. “You can be found guilty of one charge and not guilty of two, or any variation. Her worst-case scenario in all likelihood is that she will not get jail time. She’ll [could] be placed on probation between 12-24 months with conditions attached like community service (typically 24 hours completed within 60 days), random drug and alcohol screens with her being under 21, anything.”

But if Jenelle and her attorney decide to enter into deferred prosecution, there will be an order in place to pay all court costs and fines, do community service, stay out of trouble, and not have any pending charges in North Carolina or any other state.

“You have to be good,” her attorney states. “If [she] complies with everything, then those charges are dismissed.”

As of now, Jenelle has not entered into any type of please. And until she heads to court, no orders have been placed on her behavior.

Let’s just hope she can stay out of trouble until then!

They need to put her @ss on probation so that she is forced into taking care of her son instead of worrying about who is talking crap about her and men she needs to be forced into watching her son which is crap cause as a mother you should want to take care of your child.

I think she deserves some type of punishment but maybe not jail time. Give her probation, and if she breaks her probation in any way, put her in jail to finish out her sentence.

You know I think that the US MJ laws are crap. Ultimately this could result is a small child being seperated from its mother b/c of laws that say MJ is illegal. And its total BS.

I know plenty of mothers that smoke pot and have raised good kids. Its a hell of a lot better than drinking or doing heroin that’s for sure.

Complete BS

UMM… Have you watched any of the episodes. She is a terrible mother. She always leaves her child and is verbally and physically abusive to her mother. The marajuana is the least of her troubles. She does not deserve to raise that child.
