JUSTICE FOR OUR GRACE

                                          
                                                                  "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.

Grace's family and village are grateful for the outpouring of support and media coverage from across the country. 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.
