It’s back to walking the straight and narrow–- or at least trying to–- for Ryan Edwards.
The Sun reported that the Teen Mom dad was ordered Tuesday at his court hearing to follow a series of strict rules following his December 23 release from jail.
As The Ashley told you last week, Judge Gary Starnes ordered on December 23 that Ryan be released “as soon as possible” from the Tennessee jail he’d be incarcerated in since his December 8 court date, despite the judge previously ruling that Ryan was to spend the holiday season in the slammer (at least through January 17) after repetitively getting into trouble and not completing court-ordered requirements.
According to The Sun, Ryan’s probation on time served was revoked during a court hearing on Tuesday and his suspended sentence was reinstated, with the judge ordering the father of three to follow strict court conditions going forward.
Per these conditions, Ryan is required to take monthly Vivitrol shots, which he has previously failed to keep up with at times since he began receiving the injections in July. (Vivitrol is a prescription injectable medicine designed to help curb alcohol and/or opioid dependence.)
Ryan must also complete the “HCP Level 2” (home care package) for balance and random hair follicle tests, as well as file a comprehensive treatment plan within 45 days, attend counseling sessions and and follow all recommended treatment requirements set forth in his post-treatment plan.
During Ryan’s December 8 court hearing, District Attorney Coty Wamp suspected that Ryan was “not doing [Council for Alcohol and Drug Abuse Services] CADAS outpatient” as he had been ordered to do, which was noted to Judge Starnes prior to Ryan being handcuffed and taken out of the courtroom.
Ryan’s next court hearing is set for April 23, 2024.
