When stopped by security outside of the store, Christine admitted to theft. “Smith’s behavior was erratic and eyes glazed,” the arrest affidavit read. “Security searched her for their protection and hers, and found a glass pipe in her purse, along with a plastic bag with rock cocaine inside of it, which was also found inside of her purse.”

Christine agreed to a plea deal and pled guilty to conversion, while the other charges were dismissed. She was sentenced to 365 days in jail with 361 days suspended and was placed on probation for 365 days. She was also ordered to complete substance abuse evaluation and treatment.

On Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant, Jade, who shares daughter Kloie with boyfriend Sean Austin, confessed she wasn’t sure she could count on her mom to help with the baby due to her struggle with addiction. “It’s hard to trust anything she says to me,” Jade admitted. “If I found out she was doing hard drugs, I don’t think I would be able to let her be around Kloie. That’s a decision I have to make.”
