Mother jailed for not vaccinating son loses primary custody

Mother jailed for not vaccinating son loses primary custody

A MI judge has reduced the child custody rights of a woman who was jailed for not following through on a court order to vaccinate her nine-year-old son.

The boy received four immunizations this week, according to court testimony on Wednesday, USA Today reported.

Bredow is in the middle of a custody battle over her son with James Horne, the boy's father. She also granted temporary custody to Horne and ordered the boy to be vaccinated.

"I am an educated vaccine-choice mother and I have signed vaccine waivers and have been fully compliant with all state laws for both of my children for every school year", Bredow said before the sentencing hearing last week.

Bredow says vaccinations go against her religious beliefs. Horne had his son get the shots on Monday, when he had custody and Bredow was locked up, USA Today reports. McDonald gave Bredow's attorney, Steven Vitale, 21 days to object to the decision, which Vitale says he intends to do.

Bredow and Horne separated before the boy was born in 2008, and since then, Bredow has had physical custody. She immediately appealed that decision and the court found her appeal without merit.

The specific reason that Bredow was in contempt of court is that she had consented to have her son vaccinated in court pleadings late previous year, although Vitale says that those pleadings were filed "in error", according to USA Today.

Vitale argued that those pleadings were filed by a previous attorney in error, and that Bredow never meant to agree to vaccinations.
