Mark McDaniel isn’t the first sex offender “Mama June” Shannon’s been involved with.

Following Mama June’s rekindled relationship with the convicted child molester — spurring TLC to abruptly cancel the family’s show, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo — RadarOnline.com has learned that the reality star was involved with yet another convicted sex offender.

Her ex Michael Anthony Ford — the father of Jessica “Chubbs” Shannon — was in custody for more than two years after his 2005 conviction linked to the sexual exploitation of a child over the internet.

Ford, who is till on the sex offender registry, is currently in custody in connection with a child abandonment charge.

Ford, in a 2012 interview with The National ENQUIRER, said he felt June’s “kids were being exploited” on the TLC show, and griped about his estrangement from Jessica.

“It’s sad and aggravating,” Ford said. “To my daughter, I’m just ‘Michael,’ not ‘Daddy.’ If Jessica wants to tell me, without being influenced by the rest of them, that she doesn’t want anything to do with me, I wouldn’t like it, but I would respect that."

Saying that Jessica’s only met him five times in her whole life, he asked, “When do I get to be a father?”

Ford, in the past, also faced charges for passing bad checks and for shoplifting at a Walmart where he’d been employed.

The lineup doesn’t end there, as Mama June’s other baby daddies also have been behind bars for various offenses, though not of a sexual nature: Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson (father of her daughter Alana, “Honey Boo Boo”) was convicted in 1998 in connection with arson and robbery; and David Dunn (father of Anna) spent time in custody in connection with a series of thefts in the late 90s.

As Radar exclusively reported, McDaniel’s presence purported presence around Shannon’s children spurred Georgia’s Child Protective Services agency to launch a probe on the family.
