CBS News Dallas reports:
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has called for the “immediate release” of a Dallas salon owner who was arrested and sent to jail for opening her business in defiance of Gov. Greg Abbott’s stay-at-home orders. Shelley Luther, owner of Salon A La Mode, was sentenced to seven days in jail Tuesday after Dallas judge Eric Moye said she violated those orders as the coronavirus pandemic continues.
Paxton said jailing Luther for seven days, which overlaps with her being able to operate her business, is “unjustifiable.” Paxton also said Dallas County has been reducing its jail population due to concerns of COVID-19 and that releasing one more person shouldn’t be an issue. Luther received a cease-and-desist letter last week from Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins, but she publicly ripped it up. She had reopened her salon on April 24.
