Jenelle’s attorney reveals the details of Jenelle’s Jan 10 arrest to HollywoodLife.com exclusively — and explains how these charges will affect her current probation sentence.
“She was arrested yesterday afternoon for communicating threats and harassing phone calls to Hannah,” Jenelle’s attorney Dustin Sullivan tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “Hannah was the roommate of Mr. James Duffy [Jenelle's former boss]. Jenelle pressed charges on Duffy on Saturday, Jan. 7, for cyberstalking and communicating threats.”
Fortunately, Jenelle didn’t stay in jail long — she was released the same day. Her bond was set at $1,000.
Jenelle took to Facebook to give her side of the story leading to her arrest. “Yes I was arrested again,” she wrote on her fan page on Jan. 10. “It’s okay, Hannah’s just calling her own bluffs. How can I harass u with phone calls when u clearly don’t own a cell phone? I’ve dropped this argument weeks ago. Haven’t been paying attention to u but u have the balls to tell yr little ‘fans’.. ‘imma fu*cking kill that bitch’ ?! How’s threatening who here ?! Lmao she’s mad cuz I took out charges first on Duffy for cyber stalking. She claims that she move out becuz I said I would ‘eventually kill her’ when clearly her old phone has texts that states ‘look I’m moving out to yr house Duffy so we can move to new jersey so I can get famous for my singing’. Yes u set me up and yes u will go down. CAN’T WAIT FOR COURT!”
“Not to mention I REALLY dot give a f*ck about Hannah or Duffy when I’ve been in and out of the hospital for 3 weeks now with mono/strep and have to get my tonsils out,” Jenelle added. “Yeah as I’m about to walk out the door to go to the hospital the cop is at my door and I got down o ocmpletelyn my knees and poured out tears. I was so upset. I had to go to jail THEN go to the hospital. I feel like shit, would greatly appreciate it if everyone would drop it.”
Last week, James Duffy — who is reportedly intimate with Hannah — posted compromising pictures of Jenelle partying and making out with her new roommate Victoria Rhyne.
Jenelle is currently serving a double probation sentence, and while the new charges against her could mean jail time, Jenelle’s attorney is confident that the harassment and threats case won’t hold up in court. ”I am confident that the charges will be dismissed,” Dustin tells us. ”This girl has to prove what happened and I am pretty confident she will not be able to share burden with state.”
“Jenelle has done absolutely everything that’s been ordered of her for probation,” says Dustin.
Jenelle will battle these new allegations in court on Feb. 7.
