Slaton was arrested five days after her late husband's funeral in early August.

It's been a rough couple of months for the TLC star. Following the untimely death of her husband in late June, Slaton was charged with three drug related offenses in early August, according to court documents reported by the Sun.

The 37-year-old was charged with one count of marijuana possession and two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia. Slaton was arrested after a Sturgis Police officer responded to a complaint three days earlier on August 4.

Slaton was arraigned on August 31 and her pre-trial conference was scheduled for October 5, which was optional for her to attend.

Though her attendance wasn't mandatory, the reality star's pre-trial conference was a crucial step in Kentucky's legal process. According to state law, the pre-trial conference serves as a potential opportunity for attorneys to negotiate with county prosecutors. The meeting determines whether or not the defense and county attorneys are able to reach an agreement on a guilty plea.

Given the timeline of her legal matters, Slaton will now be juggling filming for her show's fifth season while she handles the drug charges.
