Jenelle won’t be going to jail! She plead guilty to paraphernalia possession which means she’s on probation for a year!
Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans will plead guilty on April 14 to one charges of possession of drug paraphernalia, while North Carolina dropped the other two pending charges of possession of marijuana and breaking and entering, her attorney Dustin Sullivan tells HollyBaby.com exclusively.
“Jenelle plead guilty one charge of possession of drug paraphernalia pursuant to a deferred prosecution,” says Dustin. This means that she has been placed on probation for a year. The judge also mandated that she will have to complete 24 hours of community service, pay all fines and court fees and stay out of trouble with the law until her next hearing date of April 16, 2012.
If Jenelle does all of this, the drug paraphernalia possession charge will be dismissed in a year on her next hearing date, Dustin explains.
“It’s a beautiful opportunity to do what she needs to do to get the charges dismissed,” says Dustin.
And because this plea is not a conviction — it’s a pending charge — it will not affect the outcome of the charges she faces that stem from her video beat-down of Britany Truett.
