They asked Heather's teenage cousin to be the father. While Sarah was pregnant, the three teens were jailed for stealing checks from a family member. Sarah and the baby's father were released in time for Sarah to give birth in a hospoital. Heather, who has a long history of group homes, juvenile detention, and jail had to stay for 8 more months and was released just before Sarah gave birth. Jessica, Heather's best friend (right) was in jail with Heather.
