Texas Salon Owner Jailed For Reopening Business Says She Never Doubted Her Decision

A Texas salon owner, Shelley Luther, says she never doubted her decision to reopen her business open despite it being ordered to remain closed as a “non-essential” business leading to her arrest, she told Fox News Tuesday. Luther was released from jail last week after state and national leaders pressured the Dallas judge to reverse the decision.

“I never thought that. That never crossed my mind,” Luther told “Fox & Friends.”

Further, Luther argued that her main concern with closing her salon’s doors was with maintaining her livelihood and that of her family.

“I was more concerned [about] my family, my boyfriend and daughters at home,” she added. “I just felt helpless a little bit because I wanted to make sure they were safe. They didn’t ask for any of this.”
