On Wednesday, the pregnant “Teen Mom 2” train wreck filed five assault charges against her husband of just six weeks, Courtland Rogers, in North Carolina – four are in relation to her and one is about their unborn baby.
"They are the highest level of misdemeanor you can get," Evans’ lawyer, Dustin Sullivan, explained to E! News. "He faces a maximum 150 days in jail per charge."
Evans’ lawyer claims the most recent attack on his client was on January 21, two days after she filed the charges, but that she has been “physically assaulted over a period of time” by her new husband.
On Monday, Evans, 21, was rushed to the hospital amid a miscarriage scare, which was brought on after a massive blowout with Rogers after he left town to party with friends. Later that day, she tweeted, "I am getting a divorce, ASAP." Although she did not lose her baby, Evans has been down in the dumps, says Sullivan. “She seems to be very concerned about her general health and well-being. She is not upbeat at all. She is going through a very difficult time right now."
But she seems to be taking it all in stride. Evans, who does not have custody of her 3-year-old son Jace, has been hanging out with her ex-fiancé, Gary Head, playing video games, according to her Twitter feed.
Rogers is due in court on February 18… but knowing him and Evans, they could be back together by then!
