BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Brunswick County’s “Teen Mom 2” star Jenelle Evans has been flying under the radar, but today, she is back in the news. Evans tested positive on a drug test last week, violating her probation, which means she could be back in hot water and in the spotlight.
After Jenelle went to rehab last month, many people, including her lawyer, thought she had her act together. But a probation violation report tells a completely different story.
“I hadn’t heard from her in quite some time,” said Jenelle’s attorney, Dustin Sullivan. “No news is usually good news and I thought that was where we were at until today.”
Sullivan says he was surprised to learn his client may have violated her probation. In the probation violation report obtained by WWAY, it says that the MTV personality violated her probation in four ways.
The first violation says that Jenelle tested positive for THC, a substance found in marijuana, and admitted to using the drug. The positive results came up at a scheduled monthly drug screening that Jenelle was ordered to take part in after she was charged with possessing drug paraphernalia earlier this year.
The report also says that Jenelle owes the state of North Carolina more than $300 in payments for her probation officer and supervision.
The last violation says that Jenelle has not followed through with her obligation to continue her rehabilitation by taking part in aftercare stated in her rehab discharge plan.
Sullivan says if his client did test positive for marijuana, she could face 45 days in jail. He says he’s worried that may throw off what she told him she had planned for her future.
“My concern right now is that she is enrolled in school and she will be enrolled in school in the fall,” Sullivan said. “I would hate to disrupt that, but if it’s jail time then we’ll figure something out.”
Jenelle is due back in court Friday for charges stemming from a fight video that went viral online earlier this year. Sullivan says he believes the case will be continued.
