Reports say Michael Anthony Ford was arrested in 2005, and was later convicted for the sexual exploitation of a child over the Internet. He was reportedly sentenced to a maximum of four years behind bars and 10 years of probation, however, some details of his conviction remain unclear.

Alana gained popularity after appearing on “Toddlers and Tiaras.” The last episode of the show aired in August 2014, and it has since been canceled in light of Mama June’s latest troubles.
