The Dallas Morning News reports:
A Dallas salon owner will spend a week in jail after she was found in contempt of court Tuesday for violating an order to close her salon during the coronavirus pandemic. In addition, Shelley Luther was fined $7,000 for continuing to operate her business, Salon à la Mode, in violation of a judge’s temporary restraining order issued against the business.
Luther was taken into custody immediately after the hearing and booked into the Dallas County jail just after 4:30 p.m.
Like other businesses deemed nonessential, Luther’s Far North Dallas salon was forced to close March 22 after the county enacted its stay-at-home order. She reopened the salon April 24 despite that order, and tore up a cease-and-desist letter from County Judge Clay Jenkins at a demonstration the next day.
So the Dallas salon owner who reopened is sentenced to 7 days behind bars. What a crock of crap, especially when actual dirt bags are being released from jail! #reopenAmerica
