WLKY.com - Family - Judge Orders Woman Not To Get Pregnant This is from one of my local news station websites. I read this and laughed. I didn't know judges could do that. ST. JOSEPH, Mo. -- A judge is giving Mandy Nelson an unusual order -- don't get pregnant. Nelson, who already has three children, was given probation by a judge in a forgery case. But if Nelson wants to stay out of jail, she can't have another baby out of wedlock. The Buchanan County, Mo., circuit judge also ordered Nelson to perform community service, pay restitution and go back to school for her GED or high school diploma. The 26-year-old Nelson said she's shocked by the judge's no-preggers order. But Nelson noted she had an operation to make her sterile after the birth of her third baby.
