In my last post about Zinah Jennings, I mentioned how she might just out-crazy Casey Anthony. Now she may outdo her entirely as she may spend even less time than Casey Anthony in jail.
First, a little background information if you’re new.
22-year-old Zinah Jennings and her 18-month-old son Amir went missing around Thanksgiving of 2011. Amir’s grandmother filed a missing persons report in early December. Zina Jennings has turned up but there is no sign of her son and she’s not talking.
In her hometown of Columbia, South Carolina Jennings was involved in a one person car crash on Christmas Eve. Amir was not with her. When questioned by police Jennings allegedly gave them several false stories about Amir being anywhere from Raleigh to Atlanta and just about everywhere in between. All leads that she has given them have not turned up anything.
After nothing turned up Jennings was arrested on December 29th and charged with unlawful conduct toward a child and held on $150K bond.
Now Jennings’ lawyer, Hemphill Pride, is trying to get his client released from jail and a judge may be granting that request tomorrow. Mr. Pride alleges that the prosecution does not have enough evidence to charge her with unlawful conduct toward a child and a judge gave prosecutors until tomorrow to make their case or see her go free for now.
Unfortunately for Amir Jennings, no one has anyone they can go to in order to appeal his disappearance.
