After disturbing reports surfaced about June Shannon, the matriarch on “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” dating recently freed convicted child molester Mark McDaniel–who forced Shannon’s daughter Anna to give him oral sex when she was 8 years old–the network canceled the series.
Now, things have taken a turn for the horrifying, because the three men who fathered three of her other children also have criminal histories, including another sex offender.
It turns out that Jessica Shannon, June’s 17-year-old daughter, has a father convicted and sentenced to four years in prison in 2005 for “sexually exploiting a child over the Internet.” Michael Ford is still in prison on child endangerment charges.
Two of the other fathers have also served time, though not because of crimes pertaining to sex offenders.
After Anna told a teacher at school in 2003 that McDaniel had been molesting her for six months, he was arrested. Radar Online obtained the police report from the event, and most of the details were evidently “too graphic to publish.”
Anna, who is now 20 and married with a child, told People Magazine this Sunday:
“A week or so after it happened, I talked to Mama and she was upset, crying and saying, ‘I don’t believe you, I don’t believe you, why would you do this to me?’ And I was like, ‘Mama, he did that to me and I can’t do anything about it. You were never there to see it. You were always at work.'”
