New mom back in jail after birth

GREENFIELD — An inmate who was given a special waiver of her bond so she could leave jail to give birth has returned to the Hancock County Jail.

Miranda Luker, 23, was booked back into the jail Friday afternoon, still unable to pay her $2,500 bond.

Luker was released just over two weeks ago because county officials were worried about medical expenses from Luker’s impending hospitalization to give birth. Judge Terry Snow of Hancock County Superior Court 1 authorized a temporary waiver of Luker’s bond so she could have her baby. If she could pay the $2,500 bond, she wouldn’t have to return to jail. If not, she was to be returned to custody.
