Michigan Mom Spends Week in Jail for Not Immunizing Son

Michigan Mom Spends Week in Jail for Not Immunizing Son

He had custody of the child and got him vaccinated while Rebecca Bredow was in jail.

The judge took away Bredow's primary custody of the child and said she would have to share guardianship with her ex-husband, James Horne, the AP reported.

The specific reason that Bredow was in contempt of court is that she had consented to have her son vaccinated in court pleadings late a year ago, although Vitale says that those pleadings were filed "in error", according to USA Today. Oakland County Jail gives a one-day credit to inmates who successfully serve five days so she was able to be released at midnight on October 9.

Now, she's breaking her silence about her time behind bars, the court system, and the support she's received from near and far and most importantly, her son.

A Friend of the Court referee, after reviewing the custody battle case, recommended that both parents, Bredow and Horne, get joint custody of their son.

. Horne was given temporary custody of the boy with an order for him to be vaccinated. "It's been a rough few days to say the least".


Bredow said it was "against her beliefs" to vaccinate her children. She immediately appealed that decision and the court found her appeal without merit. "Your attorney signed that order", she added at the time of sentencing.

"She's devastated", Vitale said of Bredow.

"I would rather go to jail for standing up for what I believe in than vaccinating my child", Bredow said prior to sentencing.

Judge Karen McDonald interrupted her plea in court saying that Bredow wasn't telling the entire truth.

"It's clear to me that you don't care about orders even if you agree to them, which you did".
