Juanita Maria Kinsey is a mother, wife, and horticulturist who was arrested in Florida for cannabis trafficking. 50 pounds of cannabis made this woman, in the eyes of the State of Florida, a criminal sentenced to 6 years, 3 months, and 14 days. Maria had to give birth behind bars. She was shackled during labor while in transport to the hospital. Her beautiful child is being raised by her loving family until Mom & Dad are home.
Colby Standley is Maria’s loving husband. For the first decade they were together he dreamed of having a baby with his true love. Sadly, the first time he saw his darling daughter in person was when a sympathetic judge allowed the baby in the courtroom for sentencing. Colby had never had an encounter with law enforcement prior to leaving his home in Northern California with Maria on the RV trip that landed them both behind bars, his sentence is one year less than that of his adoring wife.
Their daughter needs our support. The funds raised will help set up the proud parents and their daughter upon their release, and assist in providing care for the beautiful now toddler awaiting reunification with her parents.
Maria is studying horticulture and training canines while Colby works in the kitchen. Both look forward to spending the rest of their lives together raising their daughter.
Maria is set to be released in December 2023. Colby will be released in October 2022, just in time to spend next Halloween with their daughter.
