Despite the serious charges against Jenelle Evans stemming from her April arrest for drug possession, the Teen Mom 2 star appeared calm when she faced the judge in the Brunswick County District Court in North Carolina.
The verdict? "Her court date has been continued by the State of N.C. until July 1, 2013," Jenelle's lawyer, Dustin Sullivan, told Wetpaint Entertainment on Tuesday, May 14. "I anticipate that she will be indicted before that court date. No new information was given but that is typical in felony cases still in district court for us."
Even if Jenelle is indicted, Dustin has insisted that "the truth will come out over time."
Dustin seems confident Jenelle's husband, Courtland Rogers, would likely receive a guilty verdict.
"Courtland's case was also today and was continued," he noted.
As OKMagazine.com reported, cops were called to Jenelle''s North Carolina home in April following an alleged domestic dispute between the troubled 21-year-old and Courtland, whom she is accused of assaulting with a piece of furniture.
The mom-of-one was found with 12 bindles of heroin in her possession and the prescription painkiller Percocet, along with plastic wrapping paper and a glass smoking pipe, which is considered illegal drug paraphernalia. Jenelle was immediately arrested.
It remains to be seen what punishment Jenelle will receive, but her lawyer says she was "very professional while in court."
