Grace was initially ordered to serve 11 months and 29 days in jail. The sentence was suspended and her prison time was reduced to 30 days in March 2017 following probation and an in-house rehabilitation program.

Grace was released on June 16, 2017, from the Williamson County Detention Center and was ordained to enter a drug program. She failed to complete the program which led to the revocation of her probation on February 8, 2018.

Grace has experienced drastic ups and downs in the last few years. She was arrested in the parking lot of a Walgreens store in Nashville in December 2015.

In May 2016, she was charged with promotion of meth manufacture. She pleaded guilty for a lesser charge of possession.

On the same year, Grace was arrested in Alabama and was charged for being a fugitive of justice. The court had revoked her probation, as reported by People.
