Mike is out of jail on bond and back in Cherokee. They fled Petite Lane and the community and headed to the hills hiding out apparently to avoid prosecution. They were taken into custody over the summer and sent back home to await trial. Vicki remains in jail and as I understand it without bail due to flight risk as she's proven how stupid she is already having not appeared previously in court and fleeing the area. Thinking the son, who was more of a victim of circumstance (lived there but wasn't responsible for his mother's actions) and not been jailed except for the initial bench hearing will likely not face the legal consequences Vicki, and to a lesser degree Mike, will realize.
Vicki has always been a few bricks short of a full load- ignorant, stupid, thinks she knows all and is above all. She's brought shame to her family who is NOT like her at all. She's a pitiful excuse for a mother having mistreated and "home schooled" her younger children---NOT! Her parental rights should be taken away as well as never being permitted to own or care for animals ever again.
Society would be much better off if Vicki remained jailed for a long time but that probably won't happen. More eggregious animal cruelty cases have been tried with ridiculously low penalties. She will get time served and probably released on probation on animal cruelty. She has other charges such as contempt of court, failure to appear etc too but who knows. She is in debt up to her eyeballs with the Noah's Ark rescue costs which one can only hope she's held accountable to repaying.
Pray for the children that they not be subjected to this woman again in their home!
