Mom Forced to Give Birth to Baby On Jail Cell Floor Over an Unpaid Traffic Ticket

by | Feb 9, 2017

Macomb County, MI — In Police State USA, a minor traffic violation can land you in a dangerous and, as in the case of Sandra Bland, deadly position. A Detroit mother just learned the hard way how far the police state will go to punish and extract revenue from its citizens — as she was forced to give birth to her baby on the disgusting floor of a Macomb County Jail cell.

Jessica Preston was not wanted for murder, or for human trafficking, or for any act in which there was an actual victim, when she was kidnapped by police while 8-months pregnant and thrown in a cage.

What did Preston do to be kidnapped by armed agents of the state and be locked away, you ask? She was unable to afford the fines levied against her by the state for driving infractions, so her license was suspended. When she was ‘caught’ driving with a suspended license — her first offense — Preston was locked in a cage.

Unable to pay her ridiculously high bail of $10,000, Preston, who was beginning to go into labor, was forced to rot in a cage for 5 days before she’d get a court date. However, she wouldn’t make it to day five.

While in a cell for being financially unable to pay the state for her privilege to drive, Preston went into labor — a month early.

Once Preston realized she was going into labor, she begged officers for help. Every time she cried for help, however, those calls would fall on deaf ears.

“They didn’t believe her,” Linda Preston, Jessica’s mother said. “They just left her (to) lay there. They didn’t care. They just kept saying she wasn’t having the baby, and I don’t know how anybody could say when she was bleeding, ‘You’re not having a baby,’ and that they didn’t send her to the hospital. Who makes that call?

“Everybody just looked at her like she was a piece of dirt.”
