NO JAIL FOR TRYING TO FORCE DAUGHTER’S ABORTION AT GUNPOINT
FORT PIERCE, Jan 8, 2001 (LSN.ca) - Glenda Dianne Dowis, 42, who according to police last summer attempted to force her 16-year-old daughter to have an abortion at gunpoint, has not been given jail time for her crime after pleading to reduced charges Friday. The daughter refused to cooperate since she did not want her mother jailed. She was sentenced to two years of house arrest and three years probation. The Sun-Sentinel reports that the granddaughter whom Dowis sought to ensure was aborted is due to be born in two months.
