Jenelle Evans tied the knot with her fiance on Tuesday just minutes after he was in court on felony charges, and now, RadarOnline.com has the exclusive details about what landed him in legal hot water.

Courtland Rogers was charged with a felony for obtaining property by false pretenses right before he and Jenelle rushed to their quickie wedding at the magistrate’s office.

“Courtland is accused of taking a gift card back to a store and attempting cash it in, but according to the store the gift card was never purchased so that raised a red flag,” a source with knowledge of the situation exclusively tells RadarOnline.com.

As we previously reported, an eyewitness told Radar that while in court, both Jenelle and Courtland’s appearances

were concerning.

“Jenelle looks like sh*t,” the eyewitness said. “She has lost about 30 pounds, and she looks terrible.

“Courtland was picking scabs on his face while he was in the court and his face was starting to bleed.”

A second source close to the 20-year-old MTV star confirmed that her family is fearful that she’s using drugs again.

“Everyone is worried about Jenelle,” the source said. "And her appearance and actions on Tuesday did nothing to quell the concerns."

Jenelle's quickie wedding surprised her family -- while one source close to her expressed concern that she may have married Courtland for the wrong reasons.

“Jenelle might be stupid enough to think that if she is married to Courtland then she won't have to testify against him in his upcoming trial, but since the incident happened before they got married that isn't the case,” the source said.

Courtland’s next court appearance is scheduled for January 3, 2013.
