Jenelle Evans Was Set Up, Attorney Argues

by at . Comments

Following their Sunday night arrest, all three participants in last week's Teen Mom 2-based brawl - Jenelle Evans, Britany Truett and Brittany Maggard - have all been officially charged with disorderly conduct.

They could all face 60 days in prison.

But Evans' attorney, Dustin Sullivan, has already come up with a defense for his perpetually troubled client.

He tells TMZ there's a "serious problem" and it's that Truett, the victim in the brawl, "was paid substantially" for the photos of her injuries and the video that has circulated online.

Why were there multiple cameras present when Jenelle arrived at Britany's house? Why did Truett wait five days to call the cops? Sullivan finds these issues "highly suspicious" and is in the process of interviewing witnesses. He believes Evans has been set up in some way and will take that argument to the jury if the case proceeds.

Of course, none of that changes two facts: Evans threw the first punch and Evans jumped on Truett and continued to pummel her into a pulp, long after Britany had stopped fighting back.

WTF? This defense is coming from a lawyer? Really? Even if she was somehow set up (which I doubt) who the hell cares and what diffrence does it make legally or otherwise? No one had a gun to her head forcing her to throw that first blow. She had the same free will we all do and was not being held against her will. She had the choice to walk away or not even go there in the first place. She CHOOSE to go there in the first place. She CHOOSE to hit this girl. And then beat her to a pulp. One would think that Jenelle knowing cameras were on her would be less likely to do this given that she already has legal issues. At the end of the day Jenelle made a choice to do this and must face the consequences for it. She had the option to avoid the whole mess. She made a choice, the wrong one, and there is no one to blame but herself and her own actions.
