A Kosciusko County woman will do time for refusing to bring her 7-year-old daughter to prison.
Samuel Davis Jr. is serving a 15 year sentence for driving drunk and killing a passenger, but he was able to successfully petition from prison to win monthly court-ordered visits from his daughter.
Still, 28-year-old Jennifer Logan tells WNDU she’s refusing to take her child to the Wabash Valley Correctional Facility for the visits.
“He had his visitation, like contact visits taken away from September 25th to August 20th, and he said ‘I don’t have contact visits, but you can still bring her and I can still visit with her.’ And I wasn’t sure what that meant, like video visitation? And that’s what it was, and I said why would I video visit with you in the prison, come there 400 miles away and spend all this money when I could do it on a computer.”
Traveling to the jail from Logan’s Atwood home is a nearly 450 mile round trip, according to the Times Union. She says she doesn’t have a car and cannot afford the trips.
She’s already put in 32 days during three previous incarcerations, and during this fourth she’s sentenced to 21 days.
