Reality TV star Mama June arrested for suspected drug possession

Television viewers in Maryland familiar with Mama June Shannon, who has appeared in the programs "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" and "Mama June: From Not to Hot," saw in her headlines recently after she was arrested at an Alabama gas station. A press conference presented by the Macon County Sheriff's Office informed the public that she and her boyfriend had been involved in an apparent domestic violence incident. When deputies responded, they discovered that the 39-year-old reality television star appeared to be in possession of cocaine and drug paraphernalia. The sheriff's office awaits laboratory results to confirm that the substance was cocaine.

Shannon originally captured the spotlight as the mother of a girl appearing on the show "Toddlers and Tiaras" in 2012. The appeal of the pair led to a show just for them called "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo." The show succeeded through four seasons until Shannon began dating a registered sex offender, which prompted the show's cancellation.

Shannon then lost about 300 pounds after weight reduction surgery and starred in a new show called "Mama June: From Not to Hot." Her new boyfriend frequently appeared on the program. He now faces domestic violence charges as well as drug charges. They secured their release from jail after paying their bonds.

A defendant in a similar position might want legal representation when appearing in court to answer for drug charges. Legal counsel could help the client develop possible defense strategies. For example, the attorney might challenge evidence or pursue a plea deal for reduced charges.
