EXC: Arizona Mother Sentenced to 5 Days in Jail After Questioning School’s COVID Rules

An Arizona mother was sentenced to five days in jail after questioning the Covid quarantine policy of her daughter’s school.

An Arizona mother who has been sentenced to five days in jail for questioning Covid policies she called unconstitutional while at her daughter’s school is speaking out about her sentence.

Jennifer Majuta, a mother to a 16-year-old daughter, was arrested in August of last year at Walden Grove High School, just outside of Tucson, and charged with a class 3 misdemeanour for allegedly trespassing on school property. Today she joined Valiant News Associate Editor Jack Hadfield to talk about her experience.

Along with other parents and concerned citizens, Majuta and her husband Damian questioned the school’s quarantine policy, whereby students who the school deemed to be unvaccinated would have to quarantine for 10 days if they came into contact with somebody who was covid positive. Majuta explained to Hadfield that locals raised multiple issues with the policy.

“Whatever side of Covid you’re on, there is still due process that has to be followed,” Majuta said. “We knew as parents that something was wrong. They can’t arbitrarily remove our children from in-person education without any kind of proof.”

She told Hadfield that the school did not actually have proof that all the students they believed were unvaccinated actually were not, as they were going only off of county health records. If a student was vaccinated outside of the county, they could not be counted as having taken the vaccine.

“They’re going off what they think and not fact,” she added. “It is absolutely unconstitutional.”

In addition, the Covid vaccine was never actually required by the school as part of their overall vaccination program for attendance, and so an exemption form was never created or issued by the school.

Qualifying questions, such as whether the student had antibodies for covid, or had been exposed in the last 90 days, were also never asked by the school when demanding students be quarantined. Answering yes to these questions would allow an exemption to the quarantine.

“Not only are they not asking questions, they are suppressing options,” Majuta explained.

“There’s a constitutional complaint form that we came to find out was in the office, and in the student handbook it says that students need to be aware of this,” she told Valiant News. “Instead, they refused to talk to us, they only reiterated that they were following the Pima County health mandate,” she added.

The school couldn’t provide evidence to back the claim “because it violates other children’s privacy,” Majuta said. At the same time, “They had no problem with announcing to the entire school” that certain students were not vaccinated by removing them from the premises.

Majuta argued that the school subjected these children to “discrimination” from both students and teachers.

“There were teachers there that actually told their classrooms that they were not going to send home homework if you’re quarantined, because you should get the vaccine,” she said. “There’s retaliation. It’s basically a form of coercion.”

Her daughter became subject to this, prompting visits to the school from Majuta’s husband, Majuta, and eventually a small group of concerned parents.

According to Majuta, the school’s principal Theresa Hill refused to speak to them and described them as “assholes,” and said their concerns were “bullsh*t.”

“She said that education is a privilege, not a right,” said Majuta. “They just shut us down. They didn’t give us anywhere to go. They put us in a corner,” Majuta said.

“So we very peacefully refused to leave until somebody could help us. And so we were arrested,” said Majuta.

Majuta, her husband, and her teenage daughter arrested for trespassing. Rather than simply being removed from the premises, the family was taken to the police station, fingerprinted, photographed, and eventually released to the school campus with a citation.

The resulting trial took 8 months. Majuta noted that she was never offered a trial by jury, and instead her and her husband were subject to a bench trial:

“During the trial, the prosecutor asked that our out of state travel privileges be revoked, and that every time we had to go to the school to attend our children’s needs, we were required to email the principal. Not for permission, but to basically makes us feel like criminals. She was concerned for her safety, just to use their power to make our lives difficult.”

Both parents were found guilty of trespass. The prosecutor asked for a 30 day jail sentence. Instead, both Jennifer and Damian were sentenced to 10 days each, reduced down to 5. However, both of them also have to take a class, and write an apology letter to the principal and the school.

“We’ve been informed that that is unconstitutional, as it violates our 1st and 5th Amendment rights to not be compelled in our speech and not to incriminate ourselves,” she said.

Hadfield asked Majuta what the community response was, to which she noted that they had received both support and backlash:

“The Police Department actually posted the incident on their Facebook, kind of doxing us. Overall the response on their Facebook page was supporting us and pretty positive, but of course we had people say that we were terrible parents, that our children should be removed from our home. The judge even said that we were setting a terrible example for our children, which of course we disagree.”

Watch Jennifer Majuta’s interview with Valiant News on Gab TV:

“You have to stand firm in your convictions that you’re doing the right thing, that you just feel in your heart that something isn’t right, this is wrong,” Majuta added:

“It’s not just about our children. It’s about other families, other children, and setting a precedent that anything can happen to anybody without due process. Your neighbour could turn you in. The government could pick you up if they don’t like that you did X, Y, or Z. Without due process, without following the letter of the law, this could happen to anybody.”

She argued that what had happened to them was a deliberate attempt to hang them out to dry as an example, so that nobody else would stand up against the unconstitutional covid policies created by the school and county:

“The judge even mentioned in our sentencing that she was making an example of us to dissuade other parents from doing what we did. She also was holding us accountable in our sentencing for mean things that strangers said to the principal. That was totally outside of our control. We had people say mean things to us! The whole thing is kind of ridiculous. Our sentence is harsher because of things that were outside of control, because of things that we didn’t do, to be set an example of. Not for the crime, but for political reasons.”

When asked whether she would do it all again, Majuta teared up. “We’ve talked about this a lot over the last year. It’s been very, very hard as a family,” she said.

“We would do it again, because if you don’t stand up in those moments in history, when you have a chance, you don’t want to look back and say, I wish I had done something. It was very very hard for us, but I would do it again.”

Majuta will begin serving her five day sentence on Monday, June 6.

    If vaccinated people can catch/spread covid, why are THOSE people not quarantined if they are exposed to someone testing positive for covid?

    Consider the impact of the realizations now spreading across the world:

    Government failed the people.
    Indoctrination centers disguised as schools polluting our children’s minds.
    Corporations murdered people for profit.
    Doctors, hospitals and the medical system betrayed the people.
    Big Tech platforms silenced the truth, costing millions of lives.
    Big Pharma designing deadly depop clot shots designed to KILL..
    Big Fake News Media was complicit in the plandemic and the vaccine biowar against humanity.
    The institution of science deceived the people and proved it is hopelessly corrupt and evil.

    What we’ve all lived through over the last two years is corrupt, deceptive, anti-human institutions waging war against truth and humanity, showing their true cards and exposing the depth of their evil.

    The police (PIGS), could care less about your constitutional rights, or the constitution. They know this crap is illegal but they follow illegal orders against the public. When the shooting starts, the pigs will be there to help the new world order stomp you into the ground.
    Federal law has become a hypocritical farce. This needs to end but it’s not going to be solved politically, it’ll take a war.
    Now they’ve engineered a food shortage, intentionally disrupted supply lines, have created a baby formula shortage, making gas too expensive to buy, trying to force poison clot shots on the public, and intentionally crashing the nation with millions of foreign invaders.
    If this isn’t cause for a civil war, what is????

    Sadly this woman, and many like her, have yet to discover that publlic schools are the enemy and will stop at nothing to destroy children. Hitting yourself on the head over and over so you can feel good when you stop is insane. Wake up and TAKE YOUR KIDS OUT OF GOVT SCHOOLS! No matter what the temp cost or inconvenience.

    Mrs. Majuta:

    You should have NEVER accepted a bench trial! Stand before the judge, plead not guilty, and demand a trial by jury–and DO NOT BACK DOWN. If they refuse, that is unlawful. As it is, there are many illegal and unconstitutional things they have already done; sue down to their socks: Each school board member, superintendent, principal and anyone at the school who said anything against you. Also, sue the police and any of the other parents who have defamed, slandered or libeled you as a parent. They will still be after you, but they’ll think twice before they abuse your family again!

    This would be my version of the apology:

    Dear Principal,

    I’m sorry you’re an a$$hole.

    I’m sorry you’re covid policies are B.S..

    I’m sorry you’re such a rigid, stubborn, close-minded cow. That’s why this is all B.S.. Thanks.

    If you still believe that there is not an unbridgeable gap between Conservatives and Leftists, your are myopic. Antifa is allowed (encouraged) to roam the streets, looting and burning with no consequences. This lady and her family protest quietly and they get jail time. The prostitutor wanted 30 days(!) but the Judge gave them five but added an insult about using them as an ‘example’ to anyone else that wanted to exercise their first Amendment rights.

    Not all that familiar with Arizona’s law but one thing caught my eye on school, being a right or a privlege. If they can round up truancy students and jail parents for not having their children educated, school/education is not only a right but it’s mandatory. A half way decent attorney, like you can find one these days, should have an easy time with his clients suing the school for violations of rights to privacy the cops for false arrest and the judge for unlawful punishment. Now if the principal had called me an asshole she’d need denture work and I would be legally incarcerated for assault.

    Also, always demand a trial by a jury in such cases. Never a hearing officer or a bench trial. The US Constitution, the Supreme Law of the land, guarantees you the right to a speedy jury trial by a jury of your peers (6th Amendment). The 7th amendment extend your trial by Jury in Civil Cases unless the fine is less than $25.

    It’s the 10th Amendment that grants state’s rights and a trial by a jury of your peers is not up to the state or local government o decide as it’s delinated as a Citizen’s right by the US Constitution.

    Know your rights and then act.
