With not happy what she received, Shelley held a protest at Frisco City Hall and publicly ripped the letter. Luther, on her defense, said she reopened and disobeyed the 'stay-at-home' order due to financial reasons. Shelley said, "Our Salon and other small businesses were closed down on March 22, and we have not had any income since. It's our right to keep the store open. It's our right for those women to earn income for their families."
So, when Shelley disobeyed and ripped the order, She was sentenced to seven days in jail and fined $7,000 on Tuesday, May 5, 2020. Dallas County Judge Eric V. Moye quoted her reopening salon "was a selfish act.' Luther could have avoided the jail time if she had apologized for her action and agreed to close the Salon, but Shelley did not comply with the orders.
Shelley said, "I have to disagree with you, sir, when you say that I'm selfish, because feeding my kids is not selfish. So, sir, if you think the law's more important than kids getting fed, then please go ahead with your decision. But I am not going to shut the Salon."
