Nathan Griffith: Going to Trial for Stealing Jenelle's Car??

by at .

Last week we revealed that Nathan Griffith was arrested on larceny charges that had been filed against him by baby mama and Teen Mom 2 co-star Jenelle Evans.

Jenelle accused Nathan of stealing her car and $1,000 worth of belongings that were in it, including a stroller and a car seat.

Nathan turned himself in, appeared before the magistrate and then was released on the promise that he would attend all his court dates.

So what's next?

Well, we know that Nathan's hearing is scheduled for March 7, during which three things could happen, according to his attorney Megan Millikin.

“It’s just the first court date in the criminal case,” she told Radar Online. “There are only three results that could come of it. It’s dismissed by the state, it’s ‘continued’ to another future court date, or we have a trial.”

However, Millikin says she is doubtful that the case will go to trial.

“The first two [possibilities] are much more likely than the latter,” she said. “It’s just like a regular criminal court date. There will likely be hundreds of others on the docket and the State will decide if and how it wants to proceed in that matter.”

Of course, representing the defendant, she will naturally tell the press she anticipates the most favorable outcome for her client - which would be a dismissal.

However, if Nathan is found guilty of the misdemeanor charge, he could face up to 45 days in jail.

It wouldn't be the first time he's been behind bars. In 2014 the troubled reality show star was sentenced to 30 days in jail following a DUI.

Nathan and Jenelle share a son, Kaiser, 1, and we hope for his sake that his parents can bury the drama so he can grow up in a somewhat peaceful home. 

But it's Jenelle and Nathan we're talking about, so we're not holding our breath.
