The prosecutor charged Hertin with manslaughter and tried to detain her until trial, but the judge eventually released her on bail of $ 30,000. This was posted by a husband’s employee.

While on bail, Hertin saw the children and fell into a public conflict with Andrew Ashcroft, resulting in the employee withdrawing the bail and returning her to prison until a friend paid for it.

In an interview with Belize Channel 7 news last week, Hertin said she dumped her ex and his politically connected family in the trash and they abandoned her to protect their name.

“I can’t believe how I was treated,” she said.

I was planning to visit again. ” , Or the guard disappeared in an unknown place. “

“I explained to Jasmine that she had to agree on a date, time and place that would be convenient for all of us who could see the children,” the statement continued. “But instead she insists on making unreasonable demands, appears without prior notice, and warns the media to deliberately create the scene.”

Hertin says she and Ashcroft have been together for seven years, but only for the last children. However, she claimed to have been financially disconnected after she was arrested.

In a GoFundMe post, her family “has hacked a Canadian bank account and lost access to funds.” Her password was changed, claiming that “thousands of money were scammed.”

The fundraiser asked for a $ 30,000 cash injection, but only $ 875 was donated a day later.
