Jenelle Evans may not have boyfriend David Eason to lean on throughout her entire pregnancy. The Teen Mom 2 star’s beau has been sentenced to 60 days in prison after violating a domestic-violence protective order, the New Hanover Clerk of Court’s Criminal office in North Carolina confirms to Us Weekly. Find out more in the video above, and detailed below.
According to the arrest warrant posted by Radar Online, an ex-girlfriend filed the order against the 28-year-old in October last year, but Eason violated it in March.
“Defendant was in the same location as his child … who was out with his grandmother … and aunt, when defendant approached same and hugged,” the document states of the incident in which Eason allegedly violated the order. “[He] was told not to … and grabbed the child again.”
He pleaded not guilty, but a judge found him guilty and sentenced him to prison.
The New Hanover Clerk of Court’s Criminal office also told Us that Eason has appealed the ruling to the Superior Court, but no court date has been scheduled yet.
Should he end up serving his sentence while Evans, 24, is expecting their first child together, it won’t be the first time the MTV personality has been left alone while pregnant as her beau sits behind bars. Nathan Griffith — with whom Evans shares son Kaiser, 2 — was jailed for driving with a suspended license while she was expecting in 2014.
The Teen Mom 2 star announced in August via social media that she is expecting her third child in January. “Time to introduce the world to our baby girl soon, Ensley Jolie Eason,” she wrote at the time.
In addition to Kaiser, Evans is mom of Jace, 7, with ex-boyfriend Andrew Lewis. Eason is already dad of a little girl named Maryssa, who has appeared on MTV’s hit docuseries, as well as a little boy named Kaden.
