The ongoing Shannon family sexual abuse scandal continues to get uglier this week as a slew of shocking new details were made public.
It all started last Friday when TMZ reported that June Shannon is dating a convicted child molester named Mark McDaniel.
We later learned that June's eldest daughter Anna Shannon was McDaniel's victim and that he abused the now 20-year-old in horrific fashion when she was just 8 years old.
As more information about the circumstances of the abuse became available many expressed shock that McDaniel was allowed out of prison, and that June Shannon is allowed to continue raising children.
A police report revealed that McDaniel threatened to kill Anna if she reported the molestation. He was eventually arrested after she told her teachers, but first the young girl tried in vain to get her mother to intervene:
"June didn't believe any of it," says a source. "She listened to her boyfriend's denials instead."
Yes, June was reportedly made aware of the abuse, but did nothing to stop it.
That's just one of the many reasons that former fans of the TLC reality series Here Comes Honey Boo Boo are calling for the state of Georgia to step in and take June's children away.
Shockingly, Shannon has a history of involvement with convicted molesters. "Mama June" had a child with a different sex offender before she became involved with McDaniel.
Difficult as it may be to believe, authorities have stated that at this time, it looks as though Shannon and McDaniel have not violated any laws that might result in a violation of his parole or the state removing Shannon'c children from her home.
