Gov. Greg Abbott said Texans can't be jailed for violating statewide executive orders as some businesses are allowed to reopen.

The governor pointed to a Dallas salon owner who is currently jailed for criminal contempt of court after she violated a temporary restraining order issued by a state district judge.

Abbott said he is modifying his executive orders, eliminating jail as a punishment for anyone who violates his rule.

Abbott issued a variation of a stay-at-home order March 31 that expired April 30. Non-essential businesses were closed and gatherings were limited.

The governor announced a phased reopening plan that began May 1, but he amended those plans Tuesday, allowing salons and barbershops to reopen Friday.

But one salon in Dallas reopened even before the statewide stay-at-home order was lifted.

The owner of Salon a la Mode, Shelley Luther, was issued a citation and then sent a cease and desist letter by Dallas County officials. The salon remained open.

The City of Dallas sought a temporary restraining order forcing the salon to close, which a state district judge granted.

In a hearing Tuesday afternoon, State District Judge Eric Moye found Luther to be in criminal contempt of court. He ordered her to pay thousands in fines and sentenced her to seven days in jail.

Abbott said in a written statement Thursday that he believes his change to his executive orders should allow Luther to be released from jail.

The governor also referenced two women arrested in Laredo who allegedly violated the community's emergency management plan for offering beauty and cosmetic services from home.

Ana Isabel Castro-Garcia and Brenda Stephanie Mata were arrested on misdemeanor charges.

Greg Abbott and Attorney General Ken Paxton said Wednesday that the seven-day jail sentence a Dallas salon owner received for defying orders to keep her business closed was excessive - with Paxton calling for Shelley Luther's immediate release. "I find it outrageous and out of touch that during this national pandemic, a judge ... The Texas Tribune|May 06, 2020

"Throwing Texans in jail who have had their businesses shut down through no fault of their own is nonsensical, and I will not allow it to happen," Abbott said in a statement Thursday.

The article clearly states that Gregg Abbott modified his previous orders to allow Judge Moye to release Ms.Luther.

There is nothing in the article about the Texas Supreme Court doing anything at ll.

They however are abiding by Abbott's original orders and made history April 10th by hearing arguments via webinar with all of the Justice participating from their homes.

Not your fault.  The headline is what it is.

Judge Andrew Napolitano accurately and succinctly described the judge as "a two-bit political hack in a black robe".

The judge followed the law and he punished her for contempt of court, once publicly, once in his courtroom after he asked her to be reasonable.

There was a complaint.  Most likely by a salon that stayed closed.

A cease and desist was issued by a sheriff. The plaintiff made a public display of civil disobedience complete with press conference.

The judge offered a compromise. The plaintiff refused.

Napolitano has done the same thing innumerable times, sad to see him say anything like that against a fellow judge.

Not exactly exoneration.

The Texas Supreme Court issued a temporary order freeing Shelley Luther shortly after Republican Gov. Greg Abbott amended his executive order on the closures to prevent incarceration as a punishment. It had previously threatened violators with up to 180 days in jail.

...

The Dallas County Sheriff’s Department said the governor’s action had no impact on the release, because Luther had been jailed for contempt of court, not for defying his order. Her appeal to the high court over her incarceration is still pending.

Luther left the jail around 2 p.m., welcomed by a small crowd of cheering protesters.

Sounds to me like the governor is the one pandering. Well, along with her.

First issues his order, his order is followed, then when someone broke the order he backtracks and feigns shock and dismay at the punishment he put forth.

Then reverses his order.

Sounds like a complete tool that cannot even stand by his own convictions or edicts.

Blows with the direction of the wind.

Go Fund Me is a private entity and does not have any legal standing as does a judges order.   If people want to be generous, go for it.   Who knows, maybe she'll return the money or thank everyone for the donation and give it to the employees who lost their earnings while she was shut or operating on a limited basis.

If I had known about the page and donated, I'd hope she'd keep it and share it with employees or other shop owners trying to survive.

It's quite obvious that the Supreme Court of Texas doesn't agree with you. Not sorry.....................now if the city thinks they have a case, they can appeal it. And they won't.

Dallas Sheriffs Dept refused to release her because she was not arrested for defying the EO, therefore Abott's retroactive rules change had no bearing.

The Supreme Court stepped in with a temporary order to release her pending the continuance of her appeal to the highest Texas court at a later date.

Yes, that is generally what happens in court when you orchestrate civil disobedience and then double down by refusing to compromise with the Judge.

It is generally a no win situation.

You do not apologize to the Judge but to the Court for disrespecting the rule of law.

She never mentions, feeding the kids, her issues are with Clay Jenkins, Dallas County Supervisor

and the fact that she hasn't received any PPP or stimulus $$.

She has no employees, she rents space or collects commissions from 19 stylists,

so she was "doing it for them".

The Judge wanted her, ( in her own words on Hannity ),

to apologize to Clay Jenkins, Dallas County Supervisor, she said she could not.

She also told the Judge, that she did it so that she and her stylists could feed their children.

The groveling nonsense is just emotional journalistic theatrics.

Luther had ignored repeated warnings from county officials to close the salon and had drawn a cadre of armed supporters who stood guard outside the salon after she opened last Friday, May 1. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced yesterday (Tuesday, May 5) that hair, nail and tanning salons can re-open beginning this coming Friday, May 8.

During the trial, Moye offered Luther the opportunity to avoid jail time by apologizing for breaking the rules and opening her salon while other salon owners continued the abide by the governor and Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins’ orders. Luther refused to do so, saying she wouldn’t apologize for opening the salon because she had done so she and the stylists who work for her could feed their children.

"You owe an apology to the elected officials whom you disrespected by flagrantly ignoring and, in one case, defiling, their orders, which you now know obviously applied to you," Moye continued . He detailed her disrespect in choosing to open her business and called her actions "selfish," as she ignored multiple public and individual mandates to cease business at her salon

 "I have to disagree with you, sir, when you say that I am selfish because feeding my kids is not selfish," Luther said. "I have hair stylists that are going hungry because they'd rather feed their kids. So sir, if you think the law is more important than kids being fed, then please go ahead with your decision. But I'm not going to shut the salon." After Luther's refusal to parrot the judge's suggestion for a groveling apology and refusal to, once again, put her employees out of work, the court bailiff took Luther away. 

It "WAS" all about …. "Making an Apology" to top "Officials" (The judge told Shelley Luther she 
could avoid jail time if she apologized, admitted she was wrong, and agreed to close her hair salon until it was allowed to open.).

oh.....she was doing it for..... "THE KIDS".

But "Deflect away. jrSmiley_10_smiley_image.gif

Why did you omit that part? 

Omit the fact that she cannot collect fees from them if they don't use her "safe" place?

What else was omitted from the tragic tale of Shelly Luther?

What of the other two Latino women arrested the week before?

Why did they not "attract" the media attention that Shelly did?

Ridiculous comment and deflections not worthy of more than this response. Keep safe, SP, and remember to wear a mask!

Ridiculous comments?  Come to Texas and experience the Justice system first hand.

These women two were arrested 04/15 as the result of a social media sting by the Laredo PD for soliciting in home hair styling and/or nails during the pandemic shut down.

Governor Abbott's new guidelines will insure that they are no longer subject to the potential 180 days in jail, fines may still apply, just like Ms, Luther.

This woman was arrested after it was determined that she was still on probation when she filled out a provisional ballot that was never counted. On March 28, 2018, Judge Ruben Gonzalez sentenced Ms. Mason to five years in prison for “voting illegally as a felon on probation,” and more recently turned down Ms. Mason’s bid for a new trial. Ms. Mason has always maintained that she was unaware that her name had been purged from electoral roll and was ineligible to vote in the 2016 presidential election.  Ms. Mason and her legal team are working together to appeal the decision to a higher court. https://www.change.org/p/justice-for-crystal-mason-we-call-for-the-immediate-pardon-of-crystal-mason

After one year in jail, her go fund me page for her home mortgage has raised $59,000.00

This woman, defied the Governor, the County Supervisor, the 14th District Court, doubled down in court

and raised $500,000.00 on Go Fund me in less than a week.  I wonder why?

She has been released from jail but still faces fines and additional hearings as the Texas Supreme Court agreed to look at the case.
