More Details On The Sentencing Of NeNe Leaks’ Son, Bryson Bryant

According to court documents obtained exclusively by In Touch Weekly, Bryant recently reached a plea deal with prosecutors. The outlet reports that prosecutors agreed to dismiss a felony charge of “Possession of a Schedule II Controlled Substance” against Bryant.

Instead, Leakes’ oldest son has reportedly pled guilty “to a misdemeanor charge of Giving False Information to a Law Enforcement Officer.”

In Touch Weekly reports that Bryant has been sentenced to 12 months probation and ordered to pay a $500 fine.

More Details On Bryson’s Probation Terms

While on probation, Bryson Bryant will reportedly have to complete 40 hours of community service. Additionally, the outlet reports that Bryant’s service must be completed within 60 days. Furthermore, Bryant will also have to satisfy random drug tests initiated by his probation officer.

“The Defendant shall provide a release which allows the Community Supervision Office to have access to all medical, clinical, treatment, attendance or work records, and for driving and criminal history,” the court’s order reportedly reads per In Touch Weekly.

Bryant reportedly will also have to undergo “an evaluation and/or treatment for substance abuse” and avoid the use of alcohol and narcotics “unless lawfully prescribed.”

Lastly, the outlet notes that Bryant could be incarcerated if he violates any of the terms of his probation.

Here’s What Was Reported When Leakes’ Eldest Son Was Arrested

As The Shade Room previously reported, Bryant was reportedly arrested in Lawrenceville, Georgia, on July 3, 2023.

At the time, authorities reportedly found Bryant in possession of fentanyl. Additionally, Leakes’ eldest son reportedly lied to police about his identity, alleging he was his younger brother, Brentt.

Bryson Bryant was reportedly booked under his brother’s name and released on bond. However, authorities soon discovered his scheme, and he was ultimately charged with lying to officers and thrown back in jail.

At the time, Brentt reacted to the ordeal by sharing a meme of his mother via social media.

Later that month, Leakes reacted to Bryon’s arrest and explained he needed counseling, per The Blast.

“I spoke to him on the phone, I think he’s doing OK,” Leakes reportedly explained at the time. “He needs rehabilitation. He needs a lot of counseling. Like many families out there, I have family members that are struggling with drugs and certain addictions. He has an addiction. He’s been struggling with it for years. He’s been in rehab a couple of times, and he still has come back out and relapsed.”

According to In Touch Weekly, Bryson Bryant’s July 2023 arrest reportedly triggered his probation terms related to a previous arrest, and he was ultimately held behind bars until October of that year. Then, in January 20234, authorities reportedly filed the updated charges against Bryant.

At this time, Leakes nor Brentt have publicly reacted to Bryant’s sentencing.
