First, a couple of small details: The district attorney has to make sure that all the girls charged — including Britany Truett and Brittany Maggard — have attorneys!
Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans‘ is involved in another criminal case in court — but it won’t be resolved all that soon. The 19-year-old reality star’s attorney Dustin Sullivan tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively what’s next in the case involving Jenelle’s video beat-down of former friend Britany Truett!
“I have already confirmed with the district attorney that it is going to be continued,” Dustin tells us.”It’s going to be continued because it’s a first appearance hearing — to make sure everyone has an attorney.”
Jenelle was arrested on March 27 — the Brunswick County District Attorney’s office says, Jenelle, 19, and the two other girls involved, Britany, 19, and Brittany Maggard, 18, have all been charged with misdemeanor simple affray — causing a public disturbance — on the March 22 brawl in Sunset Harbor. Britany also filed her own complaint against Jenelle and Brittany, accusing them of assault.
“It’s continued for all three girls,” Dustin says of the April 26 hearing. “Britany M. needs to get an attorney — as of today she doesn’t have one.”
“If Brittany M. applies for a court-appointed attorney, she has to list her income,” explains Dustin. “If she is able to get one, she will get one tomorrow. [But] if she has enough money, she will sign a waiver that she can afford her own attorney.”
On April 14, Jenelle pleaded guilty to drug paraphernalia possession and was sentenced to a year’s probation. But says Dustin: “this hearing won’t effect her probation because it’s a prior pending charge.”
