Judge: Woman too pregnant to serve jail time

In an interesting case, a 19-year-old pregnant woman from Pontiac, Michigan was granted 9 weeks of reprieve from jail (she’ll have to go after the 9 weeks is up) because she is due to deliver in 5 weeks. The judge didn’t want her to deliver behind bars.

Alexis Wilson faces 3-7 years in jail after she crashed a car into a pole and killed Tamia Williams, her pregnant passenger and Tamia’s unborn child.
Wilson, driving a rented car, slammed into a pole early that morning, breaking her pelvis and killing Williams and Williams' fetus.

Blood tests, taken at the scene but completed almost six months later, showed traces of marijuana in Wilson.

She pleaded no contest earlier this year to driving while intoxicated causing death, manslaughter with a motor vehicle and operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated, causing a miscarriage.
