    Mama June Could Lose Custody Of Her Children Amid Allegations She's Dating A Child Molester

    Last week TLC canceled "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" amid allegations that June "Mama June" Shannon is dating convicted child molester Mark McDaniel, but the 35-year-old mother of four stands to lose much more than just her show.

    On Friday, June's eldest daughter, Anna Shannon Cardwell, who is now 20 and married with a 2-year-old daughter of her own, confirmed that she was the 8-year-old whom McDaniel molested.

    While her mother has repeatedly denied that she's dating McDaniel, more evidence to the contrary continues to emerge. Sources told TMZ that Shannon's recent split with Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson, was actually due to her own infidelity rather than his.

    On Sunday, TMZ published photos of Shannon sitting in a stairwell with her 9-year-old daughter Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson and McDaniel, who was convicted of aggravated child molestation in 2003. He was released from Dodge State Prison on March 1, 2014, after serving 10 years behind bars.
    The scandal has already lost the family their show, but June could stand to lose custody of her three daughters, Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon, 14, Jessica "Chubbs" Shannon, 17, and Alana, according to a spokesperson for child services.

    "Generally speaking, when we receive a report that children are living around a sex offender ... it would certainly rise to the level of concern of us looking into it," Susan Boatwright, a representative of Georgia's Division of Family and Child Services, told People magazine.

    Due to privacy laws, Boatwright was unable to say if there are any ongoing investigations into the allegations against June Shannon, but did say, "If we thought a child was in harm's way in any way, shape or form, we would develop a safety plan and make sure the children are not around an offender."
