Jenelle Evans Eason’s self-described “life long best friend” Tori Rhyne was once again in front of the infamous Brunswick County Detention Center booking camera this week as she found herself back in jail on heroin and drug paraphernalia charges.
Tori’s latest mug shot photos were snapped on October 10 when the 24-year-old turned herself in just before 2PM. The most recent booking photos are a bit more glamorous than her previous modeling session at the BCDC, when she was arrested in April of 2016. And speaking of that arrest, it is those charges that are the reason she is currently back behind bars.
“She has to serve 10 days in jail set by the probation officer,” a New Hanover County Court clerk tells Radar Online. “It’s a deferred prosecution. They might reduce the conviction level if she works out an agreement with the judge.”
Tori will reportedly be released on Saturday, October 14.
Just after her arrest last year, Tori defended herself on social media. “Yes I got charged but no it wasn’t mine and yes it’s getting dismissed. Get ur facts straight first.” She emphasized that she does not do dope by tweeting: “If Virgin Mary had a bleached a**hole that’s how clean my arms and nose would be. #SayNoToDope.”
Tori emphatically denied using drugs again and explained: “I just got caught up with the wrong place at the wrong time. And yes my hair in my mugshot looked awful. Lol but that’s not a daily thing.”
I want to emphasize that there really is no evidence that Tori has been using drugs over the last couple of years. I can’t vouch for the company that she keeps, but it’s important that folks don’t jump to that conclusion merely because she is sitting in jail right now on a heroin possession charge. I know that sounds weird, but it does sound entirely plausible that Tori was in a situation where the drug evidence was found and “no one claimed it so therefore we all got charged,” as Tori stated.
I imagine we wil be hearing more from Tori herself on social media after her release on Saturday.
