Mom gets jail over refusal to vaccinate son

A MI mother was told she'd face jail time if she didn't get her son vaccinated.

A suburban Detroit woman will spend a week in jail for violating an agreement to have her son vaccinated.

FOX 2's Charlie Langton reports Rebecca Bredow's ex-husband wished to vaccinate their son, but she did not and is the primary caregiver.

Rebecca Bredow had a hearing in Pontiac on Wednesday to decide if she will go to jail for refusing to vaccinate her son.

Bredow was found in contempt of court, and McDonald said the boy would be vaccinated today based on the November 2016 agreement made between the woman and her ex-husband.

However, she later defied a court order to get the boy up to date with his jabs, and has been sentenced to seven days in prison as a result.

She and her ex-husband decided at the time of their child's birth that they would space out and delay jabs for their son.

"I'm gonna stop you because the truth matters", the judge said.

"I couldn't bring myself to do it", the mom of two said in court. "But what I don't think you understand is that your son has two parents, and dad gets a say", said Judge Karen McDonald, who found Bredow in contempt of court. And the record, I urge you to review it and what you just said, that he has a newfound objection is not true.

"It's unmistakable to me that you couldn't care less about requests, regardless of the possibility that you consent to them, which you did". "Your attorney signed that order". McDonald granted temporary custody to him and ordered the boy to be properly vaccinated.
