In the latest trailer for Mama June: Road to Redemption, the 41-year-old has high hopes to rebuild relationships with her family after she was arrested in 2019 on charges of possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia.
“I have no idea who my mother is anymore,” says June’s daughter, Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon Efird, 21.
The trailer cuts back to June’s arrest and rehab stint.
“I’ve got to continuously show Pumpkin that I’ve changed,” says June.
In a sit down with Marriage Boot Camp‘s Dr. Ish Major, June says that “everyone deserves a second chance.”
But Dr. Ish disagrees, informing June, “You are out of your mind.”
While June’s daughters, Pumpkin and Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, face their own struggles, June grapples with the repercussions of her arrest.
“I may go to jail and never see my kids again. I’m scared s—less,” she says.
And when June’s family begins to question her sobriety, yet again, June wants to make it clear she is in it for the long-haul.
“I want to say that I’m sorry,” says June, “but I need to show that I’m sorry.”
June was arrested on charges of possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia in March 2019 after she allegedly had crack cocaine and a crack pipe on her. Her boyfriend, Eugene Edward “Geno” Doak, was also arrested.
Both were given felony charges for drug possession in September 2019. The couple’s attorney entered not guilty pleas on their behalf the following month, a rep for the Macon County District Attorney’s Office confirmed to PEOPLE at the time.
And in April of 2020, The Blast reported how an Alabama judge had ordered June’s criminal trial to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. At the time, all hearings were reportedly pushed to the fall.
