Jenelle Evans Needs Jail Time to Straighten Her Out

Eye Roll 14

Jenelle EvansI hear the name Jenelle Evans and I just seriously can't help but shake my head anymore. For the last couple months, it really seemed like she and husband Courtland Rogers had their acts together. But after being found with 12 bindles of heroin earlier this week and being arrested for possession, everything's seeming a little dismal.

Despite these new charges, Jenelle's lawyer Dustin Sullivan swears that the 21-year-old Teen Mom star has NOT gotten off easy with the law in the past. This is the same man who tells Wetpaint that after having several trials in the last three years, she's never been found guilty.

Well HELLO, she DEFINITELY shouldn't be getting off easy with the law. I feel like every time I turn around, Jenelle is walking in and out of court rooms and police stations. If you ask me, what this Teen Mom star needs is to sit in a jail cell for a while. A good while.

Let's look at the past here, shall we? This girl has been to rehab. She's been slammed by the media and her zillion Twitter followers for her ridiculous decisions. I'm sure she's gotten an earful from her family, too. It just seems like NOTHING is getting through to her. Just when we have hope that things are actually getting better, BAM, she's found with heroin.

This is the same woman who says she wanted to get better for her son, Jace. Last time I checked, getting mixed up with hard drugs doesn't exactly sound like the way to go about that. It's clear this girl is blinded to how dangerous this life she's living really is. Although I don't know if she'd actually take the time to think things over, at least putting Jenelle in a jail cell for a while will give her an opportunity to do so. Plus, it would also get her away from Courtland, who clearly isn't the best influence.

For now, Jenelle is home -- let out of jail on two $10,000 bonds just days after her arrest. She's charged with simple assault, possession of drug paraphernalia, heroin possession, and simple possession of a controlled substance. I think it's safe to say the girl needs to get it together.

Do you think Jenelle deserves some serious jail time? Do you think it would do her well?

The only statement I agree with is the Eye Roll at the top! And unfortunetly the Eye Roll is at You again! To say that a length jail stay will help an encourable depressed addicted person is INSANE!!

The only thing that helps if anything can because lets face addicts die in denial all of the time and Jenelle is absoluetely in denial an justifies everything, Is extended stay, serious rehab.  I'm talking a minimum of 6 months and real rehab, not a resort with narcotics meetings.  Addicts only learn more ways and means in jail or prision. They usually do not commit violent crimes,so their stays are usually only long enough to learn more tricks and gain more contacts....thus the reason that drug courts were established.   Since drug courts with strong guidelines have been established the rate of sucsessful rehab of defendants has increased by over 37% a year.

I realize that these are only your opinions, but any journalism worth it's salt deserves some research!!

I believe she should spend sometime in jail. I mean serve her time for the crimes. Come on if that was you or me we would have to sit there. She is not a good mother. She makes horrible choices . She blames everything on depression. NOT AN EXCUSE!!!! Get help for it. Take your meds like you are suppose to. She was doing very well off drugs when she was on her meds... I feel no sorrow for her at all. And yes if she was my daughter I still would say the same thing. And My 2 adult kids will tell you that.

They need too do something with her this time because wether taking that stuff or selling it or it justing being there and not hers is always the excuse there nis no more excuses  start making her grow up and take some responsibility and top of that would she like someone trying to sell that to Jace in another ten yrs or so wake up girl even certain drug dealers want that stuff off the streets becaus eof how bad it is take that and you've pretty much signed your own death certificate your mum needs too buy some life insurance on you dear for that lil boy!!!!!!!!!!

I must say, I am at a loss on Jenelle Evans. Up until I read this article, I had SOME respect for her lawyer, Dustin, but after reading this, I have to wonder if he's just as delusional as she is or is just a savvy P.R. guy.  The girl is an addict and addicted to one of the worst drugs there is.  I've never even tried heroin, but it seems like it's a drug that an addict will never get over.  I just don't know what it's going to take for Jenelle to get the help she needs.   I actually think, that perhaps an untimely death will be her end.  Love her or hate her, she's a human being and it's heartbreaking.  Jenelle is a shattered human being and I don't know if she can be repaired.  I pray for her, her family, and above all, her sweet baby boy whose life she's missing out on.
