Salon owner released from jail after Texas governor changes coronavirus orders

Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was arrested earlier this week for violating a stay-at-home order by reopening her business, was released from jail on Thursday. Texas Governor Greg Abbott modified his COVID-19 executive orders earlier in the day, effectively setting Luther free.

Luther was serving a seven-day jail sentence — but only served about two days — after she reopened her business nearly two weeks ago and publicly tore up a cease-and-desist letter ordering her to close. Abbott modified his orders on Thursday to eliminate confinement as a punishment for violating the order, specifically naming Luther in his announcement.
