Could Mama June be facing legal trouble over her relationship with a convicted child molester? HollywoodLife.com spoke EXCLUSIVELY to attorney Adam Sattler, who explained exactly what sort of trouble Mama June could be getting herself into.
Mama June Shannon, 35, is reportedly endangering her 3 underage children by dating Mark McDaniel, 53, a convicted child molester. Rumors are swirling that June will be investigated by Georgia’s Division of Family and Child Services, but what sort of charges does she actually face in this awkward situation?
Mama June Could Face Child Abuse Charges If Boyfriend Touches Honey Boo Boo
Wow. Things are getting very serious with the allegations that Mama June endangering her young daughter, 9-year-old Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, are truly disturbing.
Although Mama June can NOT get into legal trouble for having a romantic relationship with a child molester, if it leads to any of her three underage children being touched inappropriately or put into any sort of uncomfortable situation, the mother of four could be charged with child abuse.
Attorney Adam Sattler, a partner at Ebanks and Sattler, LLP in New York City, told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY: “If they find evidence of a family offense, they could charge the mom w abuse or neglect. If they find something more serious then it could become criminal.”
“The reason this is relevant here is because if you are dating a man that was convicted (meaning he was charged criminally and found guilty) of molesting one of your own kids, the GA DFCS can get involved to protect any children in the house,” he explained.
As previously reported, Mama June’s eldest daughter, Anna Cardwell, now 20 years old, recently confirmed that she was the victim of Mark’s molestation offense. At the time of the incident Anna was just 8 years old — only 1 year older than her younger sister, Alana, is now at 9.
Hopefully, Mama June is being very careful about this situation. While she has already made the poor choice of rekindling her romance with the same man that defiled her own flesh and blood 10 years ago, our fingers are crossed that June does not ever leave Alana alone with Mark.
Mama June’s Daughter Anna Was ‘Sodomized’ By Mark
Graphic new details about Mark’s sexual molestation of June’s daughter, Anna, have been revealed in a report by Radar Online.
While HollywoodLife.com is not comfortable sharing all of the horrific details of the new report, what Mark is accused of doing to June’s own daughter will shock you to your core.
The report also reveals that Anna originally shared that her mother’s boyfriend was touching her inappropriately with an elementary school teacher. It was in March 2003 that she shared the graphic details about what had happened to her a police officer in Spalding County’s Sheriff’s Office.
