Mama June, mother of Honey Boo Boo, is making headlines once again, but this time it’s her other half that pulled in all the attention. Mama June Shannon’s boyfriend Geno Doak was sentenced today for possession of crack cocaine. He copped a plea deal that saved him some time behind bars, but his sentence is still rather harsh.
According to TMZ, Geno Doak, star of the Mama June: From Not To Hot and Mama June: Road To Redemption, was handed a 16 month sentence today. The reality television star will spend that time with the Macon Community Corrections.
There is a silver lining to this situation, because Geno won’t actually see lockdown. He will be closely monitored by the program for that duration of time, but he will go to jail if he messes up.
Mama June and Geno were busted outside of an Alabama gas station after the two got into a fight. Someone saw the two arguing and called the fuzz. When the police got involved they discovered drugs on the couple. They were charged with felony drug possession and misdemeanor unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. That drug paraphernalia part was later dismissed.
Geno will be placed on probation for two years on top of this while he serves out his 16 months. He must also complete a substance abuse treatment program as part of his plea deal.
Mama June is not doing hard time. She already pled guilty and was sentenced to 100 hours of community service for her part in the ordeal.
Hopefully, they will make it through this situation and be better off for it. If anything, we’re likely to hear all about it on the family’s ongoing reality television show.
