Back in court, Charisse Stinson is facing an additional charge in connection to her son, Jordan Belliveau’s death.
She’s charged with giving false information to a law enforcement officer during an investigation.
Police said for days, Stinson misled them until Jordan’s body was found.
As the family prepare for his funeral, the community is coming together to help raise funds.
“We just want to make sure that baby Jordan has the best home going services that we could possibly give,” said Theodore Dallas, owner of T.R. Dallas Cremation Services.
A car wash took place Friday at the funeral home.
Those who have been following the tragic story, like Madra Bell, stopped by to donate.
Like so many others, she’s wondering why Judge Kimberly Todd granted custody back to Stinson, knowing her destructive past.
Todd’s family is known around Pinellas County.
Her mother, Barbara Sheen Todd was a county commission chair and her father, Thomas C. Todd was a school board member.
Her term is six years.
#VoteHerOut has been trending on social media.
Bell said she will make sure not to vote for her in the next election.
“They are favoring more the mother than what the situation is and they need to look at that and I’m not blaming the daughter, the mother, I’m not blaming her. It’s the system. The system needs to be looked at and taken seriously because these children are suffering.”
Judge Todd is out of town.
She’s expected to return next week and possibly address media.
