We previously posted about the legal issues surrounding 16 and Pregnant star Taylor Luck, her boyfriend Desmond Townsend, and her baby daddy Armani — but those legal issues are NOTHING compared to Taylor’s parents!
Tina Luck and Corey Luck have been sued no fewer than 17 times over the past 20 years, including multiple evictions. The lawsuits and court fees for the cases that I could find total more than $90,000!
Civil suits aren’t the only legal problems for the inaptly named Lucks, however. They also have multiple criminal charges and convictions as well — most of which are for fraud and writing bad checks.
I will start with a timeline of criminal charges against Taylor’s mom, Tina Luck, simply because it is much shorter.
TINA LUCK CRIMINAL HISTORY
12-19-2014 Tina charged with 3 felonies and a misdemeanor. A felony count of Forgery-Uttering would eventually be dismissed after Tina pleaded guilty to the following charges:
Theft-False Representation Over $5000-$10,000 – FELONY

CIVIL SUITS AGAINST TINA & COREY
I’m going to start this section with the most recent because it seems relevant to Taylor’s 16 and Pregnant episode. It looks as though the Luck family moved earlier this year from one duplex to a duplex next door. They were served with an eviction notice for their current rental on January 22, but it appears as though they resolved the case in March.
The Lucks were sued by their previous landlords for $9,900 on January 29. The court ruled in favor of the plaintiffs the following month with the total amount of the judgment/lien (including fees) being $10,114.50.
I will also mention here at the beginning of the civil action section that Tina filed for divorce from Corey on September 7, 2017. It was later dismissed on November 13, 2017.
Below is the rest of the civil suit timeline — and it is mind blowing! Something tells me that Corey and Tina’s appearance on a nationally televised reality show is going to cause quite the stir in their hometown!
