But Sierras attorney says Georges knew what the case was about.
First of all, for her to say she does not know what the case is about is untrue because I discussed it with her before she went to court, Williams said.
Georges had to use a Creole translator in Mondays court proceedings.
Menendez told a reporter Monday that there was a miscommunication where Georges initially thought Sierra had already given birth, but she thought that was cleared up before the court hearing.
Her English is a barrier, said Menendez.
As far as not knowing about her daughters case, Menendez said she did not go into details, assuming Georges already knew from media reports.
Its not like it was a secret, she said.
Menendez said she or other family members are willing to provide a home for Sierra if Georges backs out.
I have been supporting my daughter from day one, Id rather her be with me than anyone else if the court will allow it, Menendez said. Shes been through a lot. I want to be there for her."
Menendez said she wanted her daughter to live with her all along, but Sierras attorney discouraged that because of a pending Department of Children and Family investigation into Menendez background.
Williams blames the media for Georges change of heart.
Her second thoughts can be attributed to the intense media scrutiny shes gotten since this morning, Williams said.
Criminal Defense Attorney Michael Catalano said Monday that it is within Georges rights to change her mind.
There is no law against that woman changing her mind as long as she has always told the truth to the judge, he said.
The Broward Sheriffs Office website shows Sierra, who was being held on a $100,000 bond, still jailed Monday night. It was not clear what the next step would be.
Until I have a chance to speak to the woman myself, I cant predict whats going to happen, Williams said. Im getting all of this second hand.
