Geno Doak, who is the boyfriend of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star Mama June, has been sentenced to just over a year in prison in connection with a 2019 felony possession case.
Geno Doak and June Shannon have had quite a journey together in recent years as a couple. June’s children blamed Geno for starting their mother’s drug addiction and the downward spiral her life took after meeting him. Before dating Geno, Mama June had a show on TLC that highlighted her weight loss journey and her attempts to maintain the weight after losing it.
It was a hit and inspired many fans who were on their own weight loss journeys. That show was cancelled but turned into Mama June: Family Crisis, which followed June and her family as they tried to connect with her and get her out of her addiction.
During the filming of that show, Mama June admitted to her children that she had gotten to the point where she was spending $2,500 a day on methamphetamine. Her habit had become so bad that she was forced to sell the family home to continue funding her addiction. Despite her daughters’ claims that her addiction was Geno Doak’s fault, June said during the special that she was simply using because she wanted to and for no other reason.
At the time, her youngest daughter, Alana, had moved out and was living with her older sister, Lauryn. They did not want their 13-year-old sister surrounded by drugs and living with addicts. After her 2019 arrest, Mama June told her children she was working to get clean and promised she was doing her best to get better.
Mama June’s boyfriend has been sentenced to just over a year in prison after being arrested for drug possession in Alabama in 2019. According to TMZ, Geno Doak has agreed to a plea deal, in which he will serve 16 months in Macon Community Corrections for his drug charges.
As with his plea deal, Geno Doak will not have to spend any time in an actual jail cell, but he will have a list of rules that he must follow or he will be put behind bars. Geno and June were arrested together in 2019, but June will not have to serve any jail time. She previously agreed to a plea deal, in which she had to serve 100 hours of community service, as well as stay sober. After completing her 16 months, Geno will have to serve two years of probation and participate in a substance abuse treatment/assessment program.
