The charges against Shanesha Taylor has been dropped!! Taylor was arrested back in march for leaving her children in the car during a job interview. This morning a deal was reached, the deal will require Taylor to complete parenting and substance abuse classes as well a establishing an education and childcare trust fund for her three kids. With each education trust fund to have $10,000 in. The money will come the fundraisers that was set up on Taylor’s behalf to help with legal fees and other expenses. A total of $144,775 was raised. $144,775 from over four thousand donors.
By entering into this agreement and program, Taylor avoided a potential two year probation or a possible eight year sentence.
If Taylor fails to follow the conditions of the agreement, the criminal charges will be reinstated.
I think it’s absolutely barbaric that she’s gotta have a fucking $10,000 trust find for each child. Judges shouldn’t even be able to pull this kind of shit. The 2 years probation might have been better than that shit if the fundraiser hadn’t happened. But anyways, as good as it is to see any relatively decent “court justice”, this only happened bc her case received strong national backlash and was a big media story. You know the government ALWAYS tries to make the public happy.
