Criminal charges have been filed against a pregnant mother who allowed her desperate three-year-old son to relieve herself in a parking lot at a gas station.
The disorderly case against Brooke Johns was rejected on Thursday after state representatives insisted in court that her actions were not the charges, because she was acting just like any good mother would.
& # 39; The mother tried to be a good mother & # 39 ;, said lawyer Ben Allen on behalf of the state. & # 39; The child had an emergency and Mom took care of the emergency. That is what we expect from all good mothers. & # 39;
Johns was confronted with a maximum sentence of 60 days in jail and a fine of $ 5,000 until Thursday's hearing.

The incident occurred on March 29, when Johns, who was nine months pregnant at the time, drove her son through North Carolina when he told her to use the bathroom.
But by the time Johns could reach the parking lot of a gas station, she realized that her son could not hold on long enough to go inside.
Johns received an unordered code of conduct in Richmond province to have her son pee
& # 39; He peed before his pants were all the way down, so he had to go clear & # 39 ;, she said in April.
& # 39; He is so, & # 39; Mom, I have to pee. & # 39; I have to pee! & # 39; I thought, "Well, wait a minute," and he says, "No, I have to pee, I really have to pee."
& # 39; And I am like, & # 39; baby, I can't go anywhere and he says, "Mom, I'm about to pee in my pants!", Johns remembered.
Johns could not carry the boy because he was only a few weeks after the birth.
She explained that she did what she thought was the best thing and covered him while he was urinating in the parking lot in front of a gas station.
A representative from Richmond County saw what was happening and called Johns for disorderly behavior.
& # 39; She allowed her male child to pee in the parking lot. I observed the man's private parts and urinating, & the officer wrote on a copy of the ticket. & # 39; Public toilets are offered at the location. & # 39;
A Delegate from Richmond County issued the expectant mother a quote and she faces a fine
Johns, who is nine months pregnant, had her son pee because she couldn't get it
The incident happened at this gas station when Johns stopped in a public parking lot
But according to Johns the boy could not reach the bathroom and she had no choice but to let her son pee on the street.
She added: & # 39; Accidents happen. And he thought, "Take him to the bathroom." & # 39;
& # 39; What if I ran away in the bathroom and someone had been there? What would I have him do? Do you pee on the floor of the gas station? & # 39; Johns wondered.
The quote led to a lot of play on social media from parents.
She posted the incident on Facebook and hundreds of social media users agreed that they had done the same.
Brooke told her son, (photo) had to go to the toilet and she was left with no other option
She posted about the incident on Facebook and people were sympathetic to her plight
Others thought that the policeman's action was far too great and that he should not have quoted.
Johns wrote on Facebook: & # 39; I am a good citizen, I do not break the law.
& # 39; I not only sent cards years ago and I'm treated like that, but I didn't discourage my son from peeing and having to pee anywhere about himself or his car seat and clearly I'm not in the right state to grab and get away to run.
& # 39; It is by no means that I am a lazy mother and did not want to take him to the store. & # 39;
