Mama June’s Ex Allegedly Molested 8-Year-Old Daughter While 3-Year-Old Was In Room, Highlight Hollywood News

Georgia is one of those states that cut back of government services and especially on child protective services, like Jan Brewer did in Arizona, and then it was revealed they’d failed to investigate a whopping 4,000+ reports of child molestation and abuse, as well as neglect.  Mama June is lucky but perhaps her own children as well as the children of Georgia are not so lucky that Child Protective Services of Georgia’s backlog is so long, she may never be investigated for these claims.


More shocking claims about Mama June’s registered sex offender ex have been revealed. A sheriff’s report which has been obtained by media outlets,  detail how Mama June’s daughter Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon, then 3, was present when Mark McDaniel molested her sister Anna Cardwell, then 8.



The incidents allegedly occurred in Mama June’s bedroom in 2003 when the future reality TV mom was at work. In the very graphic and disturbing 2003 docs, Anna told police at the time that she had done the “s” word with McDaniel, that he touched “her private parts” and that he would urinate on her. McDaniel said if Anna told anyone he wouldn’t “like her anymore,” the documents state.



After Anna completed a Forensic interview, officers from the Spalding County Sheriff’s Office in Griffin, GA, obtained warrants for McDaniel’s arrest and he was taken into custody. He was read his rights, but “refused to make a statement.”



As TMZ previously reported, 53-year-old McDaniel recently completed a 10-year sentence behind bars for molesting an unidentified child. Cardwell, now 20, opened up about reports that Mama June has started to date McDaniel again during an emotional interview with Entertainment Tonight this week.



“It’s like she’s happy. She’s smiling and laughing and giggling when he’s around,” she told ET on Oct. 29. “You know, he’s a child molester, Mama. He did this to me. Why would you let him come around the girls knowing what he did?” (Mama June is also mom to Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson and Jessica “Chubbs” Shannon.)



Mama June, for her part, appeared unfazed about the situation during a bizarre on-camera interview with E! on Oct. 29. “I talk to her — I talk to all my kids,” Mama June said of Cardwell. “We’re all doing fine. We’re just hanging out as a family and handling it privately. The protection of my kids is my number one priority.”
