"It's been a rough few days to say the least".
Oakland County Circuit Judge Karen McDonald disagreed with Bredow, stating that she wasn't the only parent with a say in her son's care.
Richardson added that Bredow and Horne have been embroiled in an ongoing legal battle, and a court sided with Horne in November 2016, ordering Bredow to vaccinate her son.
Bredow shares custody of her son with her ex-husband James Horne. He had custody of the child and got him vaccinated while Rebecca Bredow was in jail.

"Never in a million years did I ever think that I would end up in jail standing up to try to protect my kids, and standing up for my beliefs", Bredow told ABC. "He's nearly 10 years old, so he understands more than the court would say I'm allowed to explain to him", Bredow said. He told the Detroit Free Press that Bredow had been the primary custodian but the judge approved a recommendation for an evenly split custody on Wednesday. "Whether you are pro-vaccines or against vaccines, this is about the fact that my rights as a mother were taken away".
Mr Horne was granted joint custody of the boy on Ms Bredow's release earlier this week.
He said of his client, "She's devastated" but does not regret her decision to not vaccinate.
"I understand you love your children". Her attorney plans to appeal. There is no civil or criminal penalty for refusing to vaccinate your child in the USA, and every state allows parents to opt out for medical reasons, while some states permit parents to decline vaccinations due to philosophical or religious reasons.
