Judge Baird of Texas has ordered Felicia Salazar, 20, to stop having children, or head to jail. Felicia is on probation after pleading guilty to injury of her child by omission. Specifically she did not provide protection and medical care to her 19-month-old daughter, after the little girl was beaten by her father.
The father has been sentenced to 15 years in prison, and the daughter put in foster care. Texas judges can set any conditions of probation they deem reasonable, but many question the enforceability of the provision.
If Felicia gets pregnant, must she abort or go to jail for a probation violation? Has she just been ordered to not have sex? I have a feeling this case isn't over.
