    Court orders release of Black Michigan teen who was jailed for missing schoolwork

    Court orders release of Black Michigan teen who was jailed for missing schoolwork | TheHill

    It took this long to overturn and idiot Judges decision- missed homework during Covid while home schooled. Yes she was on probation.

    The Michigan Court of Appeals ordered the release of a Black 15-year-old who was detained for failing to complete schoolwork during the pandemic, a case that had drawn nationwide attention and scrutiny.

    Detroit News reports that the court overturned a previous ruling that said the teen violated her probation by missing homework. The court blasted the previous ruling, calling it "callous" and ordered the teen, known only as Grace, to be immediately released to her mother's custody.

    A report by ProPublica earlier this month first shed light on Grace's case, as it noted that she was on probation for fighting with her mother and stealing, but there were reportedly no other examples of students taken into custody for failing to complete schoolwork.

    On probation for fighting with her mother and stealing. I assume they mean physical violence. That's a tough call. What did she steal? Her mom's car? So what. Her mother's life savings? Another tough call.

    Jailed for missing homework is ridiculous.

    Most likely it was a probation agreement to keep the teen OUT of jail for a previous offense, so should the teen just have been sent to jail instead of the judge offering the alternative sentence of not missing assignments?

    Yes, it was a condition. She's 15, and whatever was between her and her mother is apparently resolved. There's a pandemic. Locking her up during a pandemic, when she likely spent almost all of her time at home anyway, would seem rather cruel and unusual.

    Incarceration for this, during a pandemic. The judge IMHO all kinds of stupid

    The article does not say, or maybe I missed it, if completing all her schoolwork was a condition of her probation If it was and she failed to uphold her end then I can see why she was sent to jail the same way any other teen would be for violating their probation. If completing all her schoolwork was not part of her probation and the judge made some wacky interpretation then I would agree with her immediate release.

    So there should be NO consequences for actions right? If I commit a crime, there is a pandemic, so I shouldn't be jailed right?

    With acrobats like you doing their work on the internet, it's no wonder this for profit prison thing is a booming business.

    So again, there should be no consequences for actions right? If I commit a crime, there should be ABSOLUTELY NO jail time because we are in a pandemic right? The law doesn't apply right?

    No, not at all- this IMHO is extreme - Yet the Judge upheld this decision.

    Now if ya want to get to the nut of it- was this sentence justified in your opinion?
