"SHE DOES NOT DESERVE THIS"
This is the cry of Grace's mother as she counts the days, weeks and now months her daughter has been detained at Children's Village, Oakland County MI.
Grace 15, previously in the 10th grade at Groves High School has been detained since May 14, 2020 for a probation violation:
"NOT COMPLETING SCHOOLWORK AND WAKING UP ON TIME"
Grace has chronic ADHD, a learning disability and mood disorders.
When Grace's school re-opened online during COVID-19, her special education supports required by law essentially disappeared. That did not matter to the judicial system and within two weeks, she was ordered to court and taken into custody for the probation violation.

This GoFundMe page is sanctioned by her family and at this time funds raised will go towards legal costs, future healthcare and education supports. Any questions about this fund can be directed to Jonathon Biernat Law Group.
