Jenelle, 20, is pictured above with shackles on her feet in a black and white striped jail uniform as she stood to face charges in Brunswick County, North Carolina on Tuesday morning.
Jenelle’s attorney Dustin Sullivan tells Reality Tea that the MTV reality star was charged with Domestic Violence Protection Order Violation on Monday night. After spending Monday night in jail, she had her first appearance in court yesterday morning. Her bond was set at $1,000.
Dustin also reveals that Jenelle’s next court date has been set for February 6, 2012. She is now facing 75 days of active jail time.
Calling the charges against Jenelle “absurd and ridiculous,” Dustin states to Reality Tea: “Jenelle has been doing outstanding on probation the last 7 months. She has passed every drug and alcohol test that has been given to her on a weekly basis. She has completed all of the necessary classes required of her and is up to date on all of her payments.”
The two arrests in the past week stem from Jenelle’s issues with her former roommate, Hannah Inman. Jenelle is accused of violating a no order contact placed against her by communicating threats and harassing phone calls.
As for Jenelle, it appears she is attempting to take some time away from social media in light of recent events. She tweeted yesterday, “BYE BYE TWITTER. DEACTIVATING FOR A WHILE. :[." Though as of this morning, she has yet to shut down her Twitter page.
To sum this up, Jenelle is currently facing five different charges. These include two no contact orders, communicating threats and harassing phone calls as well as the latest one of domestic violence protection order violation. As we reported yesterday, Jenelle is at risk for more jail time if she is deemed to have violated her probation from beating up a former friend in a taped fight last year.
