During tonight’s season premiere of Mama June: Road To Redemption, June and Geno were faced with the possibility that they might go to jail sooner than they thought as they were informed of their court date not even 24 hours before.
As June and Geno were spending some time in their Florida home, she gets a call that they need to show up to court the very next morning.
“That was our lawyer that just called, we have to be in court tomorrow morning,” she told her partner.
When Geno asked why they weren’t told sooner, she said: “I don’t know, I just know we have to be there tomorrow morning. [The lawyer] doesn’t even know either and you know the D.A. over there doesn’t like you.”

Geno quickly quipped: “It seems kinda fishy to me, are they trying to pull some s**t to get us over there and lock us up because less than 24 hours notice, that’s not how it normally works. What if we got to jail?”
June – who recently admitted they’ve put on 160 pounds between the two due to trading their coke addiction with sweets – told him: “I don’t know. We will figure it out then,” to which Geno said: “Tomorrow is going to be too late to figure it out.”
During a confessional interview, June tells producers: “I’m facing a couple of years. Geno is facing ten years. We might not get to see each other.
“I’m freaking the hell out. We don’t know what to expect in the morning.”
Geno, who was clearly frustrated, seemingly wiped his eyes as he teared up.
Back at the house, he ponders the idea that they could go to prison and June tells him to “not think that way.”

Geno told her: “It’s the truth! Just because we stopped shooting up don’t mean we didn’t screw up. We’ve changed our life around but we still got caught with dope, we screwed up. There’s consequences to that.”
June then tells producers: “I’m trying to get my life together and then, boom! This dark cloud starts coming into the picture. Our past is coming back to haunt us and slap us back in the face. I might go to jail tomorrow and never see our kids again.”
She continued: “Our whole lives could be over tomorrow, I don’t know what to expect. I don’t know what they have against us, we don’t even have any paperwork ready.”
Geno and June then asked production to reach out to her daughter Pumpkin, whose real name is Lauryn, to get their things packed up in Florida; or to send another person to get their things stored.

This new season is the first time that June and Geno come back to TV after they went to rehab to sober up.
The From Not to Hot star and Geno were arrested for possession of a controlled substance – crack cocaine – and possession of drug paraphernalia – a crack pipe – in March 2019.
Geno was also charged with domestic violence.
In October 2019, their attorney entered a not guilty plea on their behalf in the Alabama court and The Sun exclusively revealed that the 40-year-old TV star and Geno have a court trial, which is still pending to this date.
In a previous episode, fans saw June’s daughters Anna, 25, Jessica, 23, Pumpkin, 20, and Alana “Honey Honey Boo,” 15, had an intervention.

But despite her daughter’s pleas, she didn’t seek help; Honey has been living with her sister Pumpkin after her mom ran off with Geno.
The trouble continued in December, as June and Geno were accused of leaving $1,000 worth of damage after trashing their hotel room.
They were then also kicked out of another hotel in January over a $2,000 bill.
June has been desperate for cash though, as she was caught pawning a diamond ring for $1,500 earlier this month.
She has even been selling items, such as sneakers for $70, on Facebook Marketplace.

The Sun was the first to exclusively report that the couple entered rehab.
Geno also admitted they spent $150,000 in six months on crack cocaine.
The Sun recently revealed that June is still trying to make amends with her youngest daughter, Honey.
June told The Sun: “We’re still trying to make that amends and make sure we are straight.
“If I can’t be straight, I can’t be straight for somebody else. We’ve only been through six episodes. We’re still writing our real reality story.”
