The underage 19-year-old reality star was spotted on the beach with beer nearby. We spoke to an attorney who says this could definitely hurt her chances of getting custody of her son back.
What can Jenelle Evans be thinking? HollyBaby.com was shocked when photos of the MTV star showed her next at the beach with beer on her blanket on April 21 at Yaupon Pier, NC! Keep in mind she’s on probation AND she was just caught on camera physically attacking a local girl. Now Paul Castandonis, one of New York’s finest matrimonial attorneys, says these photos on TMZ most likely won’t affect her probation — but she might as well say goodbye to the idea of ever getting custody of little Jace.
The beer on the beach won’t likely be a problem for her drug-paraphernalia probation case — “unless she’s been drinking and found to be inebriated, or driving, there’s no real legal basis, and that’s what her attorney is going to argue,” Paul tells HollyBaby.com exclusively.
But the pictures could be a big problem if she ever seeks to re-gain custody of baby Jace. “In this particular situation any matrimonial lawyer on trial is absolutely going to use that photograph her against her for character assassination. You want to infer, ‘Should this individual be the physical custodian of this child?’ What kind of judgement is she going to use when surrounded by alcoholic beverages? It really questions her character and judgment. It will be used against her.”
Jenelle gave up custody of Jace to her mom Barbara, but there have been reports that Jenelle was interested in regaining custody of her son.
“It’s absolutely foolish on her part to be photographed like that,” Paul tells us. “It’s going to be damaging.”
