Woman Jailed For Seven Days For Refusing To Close Her Salon Despite Restrictions

Shelley Luther, a salon owner was sentenced to seven days in jail as she refused to close the business. As the Government directed all the businesses to remain closed during a pandemic, Shelley still stood on her ground to open the salon.

Gov. Greg Abbott released a statement last week to reopen some of the businesses but not salons. Meanwhile a salon la Mode in Dallas was reopened as well.

Luther appeared in the court where Judge Eric Moyé gave her a chance to write an apology statement to local leaders. But she denied as in her sight she did not do anything against law.

Shelley disagreed with the judge calling her selfish. Shelley said feeding my kids is not being selfish. She has workers in the salon who too have to make both ends meet.

“If you think your law is more important than feeding our families, then go ahead with your decision I’m not gonna back off.”

The court ordered that the business has to pay $500 fine for each day it remains open for services. The court has already sent multiples notices to the owner on April 24, when the salon was open for services.

On April 28th, she received a temporary restraining order to close the business. She took it to Facebook and in a live video claiming it is her right to remain fully opens. Shelley tore the court letter apart as to cheer the audience.

Ms. Luther says her business has to keep running because their workers cannot stop working nor she can close it.

They have families to support and there is nothing this work is doing that is causing the spread of the virus.

Protests are going on in the state to call off the lockdown in spite of releasing incremental opening plans. More than 33,900 cases have been reported in Texas with 925 deaths.
