Here Comes Honey Boo Boo got cancelled earlier this week after it was revealed that since her split from Sugar Bear (who was caught trolling for ladies online, don’t forget), Mama June had hooked up with her ex, who also happened to be a convicted child molester. Mama June denied it, but TLC wasn’t taking any chances, and they put the breaks on that shit real quick. Well, now things just got a whole lot worse: her daughter Anna claims she was molested by that very boyfriend.
From Radar Online:
As Radar exclusively reported, McDaniel was indicted in June 2003 for aggravated child molestation and aggravated sexual battery on his young victim, who Radar can now reveal to be Anna. (She has given Radar her permission.)
The disgraced pervert “did then and there unlawfully perform an immoral and indecent act which did involve an act of sodomy to Anna Shannon with intent to arouse and satisfy the sexual desires of said accused and said act involving the mouth of said Anna Shannon and the sex organ of the accused,” district attorney Tommy K. Floyd wrote in Henry County, Georgia court papers obtained by Radar. The abuse occurred multiple times between October 2002 and March 2003.
Though the case was dismissed, McDaniel was later convicted on aggravated child molestation charges in another case in nearby Spalding County.
According to the Georgia Sex Offender Registry, he was sentenced to ten years in prison for his crime. He was released from Dodge State Prison on March 1, 2014.
Well, that’s lovely. Anna also insists that Mama June is indeed back with this asshole, which… what? I used to think she was given way too hard of a time and that she’s actually really intelligent and amazing and this fantastic mother who wants what’s best for her children, but if this is true, that’s clearly not the case. What’s wrong with people?
