Ryan Edwards is once again in trouble with the law and this time around it’s not too likely that he’ll get probation. Apparently, the former Teen Mom star might end up behind bars for quite a while following his latest arrest.
As you may be aware, Maci Bookout’s baby daddy was arrested yesterday on charges of drug possession, heroin, to be more precise.
The man was already on probation for the same offense in last year’s case.
That being said, this time, he might actually spend time in prison.
Ben Raybin, a criminal defense attorney, explained to HollywoodLife that ‘It depends on the case if someone would be going to jail or rehab after getting busted for heroin possession. Usually, we try to send people to get treatment for when they are found possessing drugs, but a lot of times once they have given them multiple chances, like how Ryan is violating probation, then sometimes the judge says enough is enough and says they’re going to jail.’
Considering that not only has Ryan been arrested for drug possession before, he also went to rehab as well and still returned to the same lifestyle, it seems like he might not receive another chance.
As to how much time he is in danger or serving, the lawyer explained that ‘Worst case scenario he could be looking at 2 1/2 years in jail. I think it is probably unlikely he would get totally maxed out on all of that but he’s potentially facing 2 1/2 years total in jail at this point.’
Do you think the man should be ordered to go back to rehab or do you agree that jail is the only appropriate choice for the repeat offender?
