Some hate is just so blatant and unnecessary! Not only did Lake County, Florida officials find a way to violate Kaylin Ransom, they felt it necessary to exact revenge for the amount of press her fly mugshots were getting.
A Central Florida woman who gained national attention with her fashionable mug shots for weekends in jail is behind bars again.
But the latest booking photo of hairdresser Kaylin Ransom is far from glamorous. She kept her sparkling smile but was forced to remove her stylish hair weave.
And now the 22-year-old Ocala woman is being held at Lake County Jail — without bail and without a weave — for a lot longer than a weekend at a time.
Ransom was serving a rare weekends-in-jail sentence for aggravated battery and child abuse without great harm under a plea agreement after she was accused of hitting a rival woman with a baseball bat and pushing her kids out of a parked car last year.
With only two weekends left on her 90-day sentence, Ransom was re-arrested Dec. 3 and charged with violating her probation after she was accused of being away from home on three weekdays in November without first getting permission.
Ransom says she was forced to remove her weave for an unflattering photo as payback for the media attention of her glamorous booking photos. Jail officials deny that.
“I was physically, like, made to take the picture,” Ransom said in a recent jailhouse interview. “They were trying to humiliate me just for the media. It’s just because of the article.”
