Last October, new mom Laura Trickle was charged with contempt of court for bringing her baby boy to jury duty. Trickle says she brought her son to court because she didn't want to disrupt his breastfeeding schedule and she had no other child care options. However, Judge Marco A. Roldan was unsympathetic to her case. Instead, he determined that she "willfully and contemptuously appeared for jury service with her child and no one to care for the child."
