Classy, Missouri. A mother who brought her breastfeeding son to jury duty selection is being charged with contempt of court and facing a $500 fine. Laura Trickle declined the two options officials gave, saying she was unable to pump milk because her son wouldn't accept a bottle, and she didn't have the option of bringing a sitter on location to watch him. “It is not right. It is not fair for us. We’re just trying to do what is best for our children, and we shouldn’t be penalized and fined for it,” she told local news. Other state laws exempt breastfeeding mothers from required jury duty, but similar legislation in Missouri is still on the table.
