NeNe Leakes’ criminal past exposed

NeNe Leakes has never been what you would call tight-lipped about the dark parts of her past, but over the past few weeks the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star has been under a microscopic lens of scrutiny for her bad girl behavior with tidbits of her criminal past being slowly revealed. And now a major report has exposed even more about NeNe and her husband, Gregg’s, formal criminal activities.

In her 2009 autobiography, Never Make The Same Mistake Twice, NeNe wrote about an arrest in her early 20s, when her friend shoplifted from a mall and police pulled them over together. However, according to a new report by Star Magazine, NeNe wasn’t so forthcoming about her criminal past.

Athens-Clarke County (Georgia) Superior Court documents show that in 1992, when NeNe was 25 and still going by her birth name, Linnethia Johnson, she was arrested and charged with three felony and one misdemeanor counts of “theft of services” from the phone company.

In an effort to avoid major prison time, Leakes made a plea agreement and pled guilty to all four charges. She was placed on two years of probation and was ordered to repay $2,650. However, she apparently didn’t learn her lesson and she was arrested three more times over the course of her probation period.

Earlier this month, a similar report hit the web, showing off Gregg Leakes’ mug shot and a brief arrest record.

Now, NeNe’s mug shot from 1992 has been released as well. Check out what NeNe looked like back then after the cut. – nicholas robinson
