A Mississippi woman who was jailed after she accused her parents of being racist on Facebook leading to them receiving ‘thousands’ of death threats has been freed from custody after 24 hours, her attorney said.
Kaileigh Schmidt, 21, of Hattiesburg, was booked into the Jones County Adult Detention Center at noon Wednesday and charged with two counts of obscene communication.
Schmidt posted a series of screenshots to Facebook on June 5 allegedly showing her father and stepmother using racial slurs.
She also sent the messages to Antifa’s and Black Lives Matter’s social pages, along with her parents’ address, phone numbers and pictures of them.
In one of the messages, said to be authored by her father, he wrote that her mother was crying because Schmidt was ‘partying with n*****s. If you want us to keep helping I can’t see that s*** no more. I’m blown away n*****s.’
Schmidt responded by texting ‘Don’t call them that. It doesn’t matter of they are black or white they are all down to earth people and I’ve been friends with them ever since I’ve been in Hattiesburg. They were there for me when yal weren’t.’
