Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans, 19, was found guilty of simple affray — fighting in a public place — in her video fist fight case where she was accused of attacking her former friend Britany Truett on March 22. “It was a trial,” Jenelle’s attorney Dustin Sullivan tells HollyBaby.com exclusively of the Sept. 9 trial outcome. “All three girls [Jenelle, Britany and Brittany Maggard] were found guilty of simple affray.”
Fortunately, Jenelle’s charge didn’t hold. “Jenelle’s simple assault was dismissed,” shares Dustin. “She was pretty happy with the outcome.”
And though Jenelle has been found guilty, she won’t be getting any jail time. “All three girls got the same sentence: 12 months of supervised probation, 24 hrs of community service, and anger management,” says Dustin.
“[Jenelle has] been portrayed as this crazy aggressor and Truett as this poor victim and the judge was able to see past that,” explains Dustin. “Although she was found guilty, Jenelle is able to be successful on probation. She does have a pending violation, but she has tested negative her past few tests. [And] Kieffer [her troubled, ex-boyfriend] is no longer in the picture.”
“She has no problem with community service,” adds Dustin. “Anger management is something she can do. She was happy that the truth came out. It wasn’t her versus this poor victim. It was poor choices made on everyone’s part.”
