‘Teen Mom’ Star Jenelle Evans’ Husband David Eason Faces Child Abuse Charges


Jenelle Evans, known for her appearance on the reality show “Teen Mom,” is facing yet another challenge as her husband, David Eason, has been charged with child abuse. The charges stemmed from an incident involving Jenelle’s 14-year-old son, Jace.

Key Takeaway

The investigation into child abuse charges against David Eason, husband of “Teen Mom” star Jenelle Evans, has brought attention to concerns of neglect regarding her 14-year-old son, Jace.

The Investigation Unfolds

The circumstances surrounding the charges against David Eason are still unknown. However, the investigation began when Jace ran away from home, prompting concerns for his safety. The charge against David is a misdemeanor.

Earlier this year, Jace had snuck out of a window at David and Jenelle’s home, fleeing into the nearby woods. This was not the first time Jace went missing, as it was the third occurrence in just a matter of weeks. The authorities, who were involved in locating Jace, began looking into possible neglect related to his disappearance.

Potential Legal Ramifications

While Jenelle has not been charged at this time, there is a possibility that she may also face charges in relation to the incident. It should be noted that Jace is David’s stepson, further complicating the legal implications for all parties involved.

A Troubled History

This is not the first time that Jenelle and David have faced public scrutiny. In 2019, Eason made headlines when he admitted to shooting and killing the family dog, allegedly in response to the animal biting their young daughter. However, no charges were filed against him for that incident.

Earlier this year, Jenelle regained custody of Jace from her mother, Barbara, who had cared for him from a young age due to concerns about Jenelle’s ability to parent. This latest incident highlights ongoing challenges within the family.

As of now, representatives for Jenelle and David have not provided any official statement regarding the charges.
