An Oakland County teenager at the center of a controversial court case will soon be heading home.

She’s identified only as “Grace.” 

A judge sent the 15 year old to the Oakland County Children's Village back in May, after she violated her probation on assault and theft charges. The violation?  Not doing her school work.

A controversial case involving an Oakland County teenager drew dozens of people to a Waterford parking lot Wednesday night.  

The group chanted “Free Grace” to show their support for a girl, known-only as “Grace”, who has been held at Oakland County’s Children’s Village since May.

Public pressure is mounting to free a 15-year-old Black girl sent to Oakland County juvenile detention for not doing her homework.

The girl is known only by her middle name, Grace. She was on probation for some minor offenses, such as fighting with her mother and taking another child's iPad.
