Petition update

Pregnant mother with bub due any day told pay fines or do jail

Oct 17, 2017 — “She’s quite distressed about the prospect of having to go to jail for unpaid fines.”

“She cried when the police told her she’d have to go to jail to pay them off. She doesn’t want her bub born in jail.”

But the terrified young woman feels powerless and fears for her son if she gets locked up.

The young mum said, “They have too much power over me, and I just don’t like the feeling that I have to leave my house.”

“If I did go to jail, then I’d probably be a bit of a mess in there because I would be worried about my family. I’ve never been to prison, let alone seen one.”
