The Ashley likes to keep her readers up-to-date on what’s happened to the participants of 16 and Pregnant since they appeared on the show. (Let’s face it, we really shouldn’t care, but we do!) While a lot of the girls have kept themselves in the limelight, some of the girls have seemingly fallen off the face of the Earth.
One of the girls that readers constantly ask about is Season 2 star Valerie Fairman. You might remember her for uttering one of the most famous lines in the show’s history. On her episode, she was only 15 when she gave birth to a daughter named Nevaeh (that’s heaven spelled backwards, y’all!) and was trying to get her baby-daddy
Vanilla Ice Matt to like her.
After participating in the “Where Are They Now?” special a few years back, not much has been heard from Valerie, except for this little incident back in 2011, in which she was arrested for beating up her adoptive mother. (As you do.)
So what’s happened to Valerie since then? The Ashley went digging for dirt and came up with a doozy!
In 2012, multiple sources informed The Ashley that Valerie had been allegedly dealing with a prescription pill addiction and had spent some time in rehab. Unfortunately, her troubles have not stopped there.
The Ashley can exclusively reveal that in late 2012, Valerie was arrested yet again for a plethora of serious crimes. Her charges including three misdemeanors and three felonies!
On November 28, 2012, Valerie was charged with two counts of Theft by Unlawful Taking of a Moveable Property– one misdemeanor and one third-degree felony count. (The Ashley did some digging and found that, under Pennsylvania law, to be charged with this crime, the item she must have stolen had to either be worth more than $2,000, or some sort of motor vehicle. Yikes!)
But that’s not all Val did on that fateful night. She was also charged with receiving stolen property, which means she was either buying or selling stolen goods. In addition, she was charged with two counts of Access Device Fraud.
She wasn’t actually arrested until December, and in the spring of 2013, she hauled her (and her sticky fingers) into a Pennsylvania courtroom, where she pleaded guilty to many of her crimes (although her receiving stolen property charge was dropped.)
For her crimes,Valerie received at least 52 days behind bars, as well as two years probation. She was paroled on June 12, 2013, after serving only a week in jail. Valerie was also required to pay back over $4700 in fees and restitution. She is currently on probation and was ordered not to have any contact with her victims.
It appears that she is no longer living in her parents’ home, as she was required to find a place to live before being released from police custody.
Not much is known about the whereabouts of Valerie’s daughter, Neveah. In late 2012 (during this time), Neveah’s father, Matt, was in a Pennsylvania rehab center, so hopefully, Valerie’s adoptive parents, Janice and Gary, are taking care of the little girl, who turned four in September.
