Hemphill Pride told a judge at a hearing Thursday that prosecutors don’t have enough evidence to prove a unlawful conduct toward a child charge against Zinah Jennings and are only holding her because she won’t tell them where her son Amir is.
Judge G. Thomas Cooper gave prosecutors until Monday to make their argument to keep the charge against Jennings.
Amir Jennings has been missing since December. He would be almost 2 years old now. His mother was jailed after authorities say she told them several inconsistent and false stories about who is caring for him.
