Court hearing continues for second metro Detroit mom for not vaccinating kid

Rebecca Bredow

M - A 9-year-old USA boy at the center of vaccine dispute between his divorced parents received four immunizations this week, according to court testimony.

Rebecca Bredow was sentenced last week for contempt of court after she refusing a court order to get her son vaccinated within one week. In the intervening time, Bredow had physical custody, while Horne took charge of the boy on alternate weekends.

Bredow told reporters Wednesday she was "in shock" by the court's decision.

After Bredow said that she and her ex-husband agreed until recently on not vaccinating their child, the judge said that Bredow acknowledged in her own pleadings that he was up-to-date on his vaccinations when he was a year old. She also granted temporary custody to Horne and ordered the boy to be vaccinated.

It's been a rough few days to say the least.

The court order stems from an earlier custody hearing where the boy's father said he wanted the vaccinations for the child.

Bredow and Horne split in 2008, before their son was born.

The specific reason that Bredow was in contempt of court is that she had consented to have her son vaccinated in court pleadings late past year, although Vitale says that those pleadings were filed "in error", according to USA Today. Bredow's attorney, Steven Vitale, said he would object to the change within the 21-day deadline set by the judge.

Vitale argued that those pleadings were filed by a previous attorney in error, and that Bredow never meant to agree to vaccinations.
