Augusta, GA---News 12 has a look at how Jeannette Hawes spends her day in jail and audio of Hawes just days before the crime. Jeanette Hawes is being kept in a medical section of the jail at the Richmond County Law Enforcement Center, and her mother says that's the best place for her at this time.

The family had expected to see Jeanette at a bond hearing Wednesday. That was canceled. News 12 has learned Jeanette is being kept with 15 to 20 other women. She is allowed out in the common area between 5 A.M. And 11:30 P.M.

She is then locked away alone under constant supervision. Jeanette has been in jail close to a month now. News 12 has obtained audio of a sad and concerned Jeanette Hawes shortly after losing her job back in late October.

She says all she wants is peace of mind. "All I want is to be free, and just have a peaceful mind...you know it's nothing like a peaceful mind and that's what I want for once in life. That's what I pray to God for. That's what I want peace... and love... and kindness."

A family friend tells News 12 lawyers would like to see an arraignment hearing first.

    I was just recently incarcerated with Jeanette. She is just like everyone else. I believe she was possessed by a denomic force. Until this country wakes up and realizes that these types of things happen due to Satan's force on earth, then we are fighting a losing battle. Jeanette doesn't know what happened, why it happened, or how she could have done it. And in case your wondering why I was in jail...it's because I still owed on a traffic ticket that I thought I'd paid off. We need prayer back in our schools, communities, and homes. Jeanette was a normal loving mother just like most mothers. You better pray what happened to her doesn't happen to you...because it can happen to anyone! Satan is in full force, and it's only going to get worse. People need to pray for Jeanette and pray for our world. "In love with Christ Jesus"

    i think that this website is very wrong, for you guys that are with channel 12 news to sit and let people post lies about my family, that's like making a threat saying,'' if Jeanette gets out its going to be another tragedy. that's suppose to be appropriate due you guys being part of channel 12 news, on your side. i don't agree with this site at all because the information they are providing are false statements and when i find out the names of the people who are defining bad character of my family will try my best to file a complaint. i do apologize for the way i carried on about the comments they made. But I'm still struggling trying to deal with the loss of my angels, AND TO COME ON THIS SITE AND SEE THIS MADE FEEL VERY UPSET. AND THERE WILL BE ALOT OF COMPLAINTS ABOUT THE SITIUATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    WELL I THINK HER FAMILY SHOULD BE THERE FOR HER THEY GOT ALL THAT MONEY FOR HER KIDS THEY NEED TO BE THERE SHE IS SICK GOT TO BE FOR WHAT SHE DID. AND SHE SHOULD BE LOCK AWAY FOR LIFE BECAUSE AT SOME POINT SHE SHOULD HAVE STOP AND ASK HER SELF WHAT AM I DOING THESE ARE MY CHILDREN AND I JUST KEEP ASKING MY SELF HOW COULD SHE LOOK THEM IN THE FACE AND SEE THEM IN THAT MUCH PAIN AND GO ON TO KILL THEM SHE HAS TO BE SICK. HER FAMILY I THINK JUST USED EVERYONE FOR THE MONEY AND COULD CARE LESS ABOUT JEANETTE NOW. YES SHE WAS WRONG BUT HER FAMILY NEED TO BE THERE. HER MOM SAIDS THAT JAIL IS THE BEST PLACE FOR HER WELL SHE NEEDS TO GET HELP WITH HER DRUG ABUSE AS WELL AND MAY BE IF SHE HAD BEEN A BETTER MOM NONE OF THIS WOULD HAVE HAPPEN. SHE SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN THEM KIDS THAT DAY. AND THIS MAN DOING ALL THIS TALKING NOW WHERE WERE YOU WHEN JEANETTE WAS SHOWING ALL THESE SIGNS THAT SOMETHING WAS GO MSIT DOWN SOMEWHERE CAUSE YOU LOOK LIKE A DAM FOOL NOW YOU HELP PEOPLE WHEN THEY NEED IT

    All these comments bout free her!! are yall crazy!! Do you realize what she done. She needs to be punished for this. She murdered her childern something god gave her!! and why you up here talkin bout no one knew her apparently no one else did or even bothered to be there for her. And when her family talked bout the kids they didnt say oh my grand babies they said I feel sorry for THOSE kids. Yall are too blind to see. And she does no shes in jail and that she killed her kids. She always said the kids was in her way and done had them taken once before. No one knew what she was thinking so no one can say anything bout she wasnt in her right mind but now she is and dont realize what she dont yall are all to blind to see. aND DO YOU REALLY THINK FREEING HER WOULD HELP!!! NO IM PRETTY SURE IT WOULD BE ANOTHER TRADGEDY

    I really dont think she should be free. Even if she was I do believe someone would get a hold of her. But she should be punished for what she done. I dont want to hear "OH i GOT TO GET HOME MY MOM HAS THE KIDS" If shes actin like shes crazy now, wasnt she in that mode when she done it? So she should know what she done.Crazy people just blurt out and do it. She planned it the whole way to the store by taking a weapon. She should never be set free. If she does then this county is very messed up and thats why now the crime is so bad because they let too many people go. and I heard she just got her kids back!!! What happen to adult supervision once you get cusody back?? May god bless those kids and please help this child.

    I don't think we need to free her. But i really do believe God has forgave her. It still doesn't give her the right to do what she done. Them innocent children had no idea they was going to take there last breathe that day. But no she needs very serious mental help. Im a mother of three. A 11 yr old a 3 yr old and a 1 yr old. Yes it's very hard to live but never hace i thought about, Taking there lives. They may be a doctor or lawyer some day. That is my opinion. Thank You for this time to speek my mind. By the way Merry Christmas Little Ones.

    It is so evident that Michelle came from a very dysfunctional family. It is so sad that she had no one to help when she reached out, not even Mr. Willingham, who is now serving as spokesperson for the family. I certainly pray the Hawes family will take time to pray for her sometime between worrying about the money that does not belong to them. Michelle my prayers go out to you that you will find the peace that surpasses all understanding. God is in the forgiving business and He will forgive you even when no one else will. Shakayla and Jordan are at peace with the Lord. Thanks to the out pouring kindness of the community and Helen Blocker-Adams, who saw it not robbery to organize the memorial fund, that gave these precious Angels a Christian burial.

    You know Nikki and Janet, Who are you to judge? You are not our Lord Savior Jesus Christ, My God is a forgiving God and no sin is greater then the other! My friend Michelle was not in her right mind when the devil took over her soul! Neither one of you knew what she was going through and neither of you can say what u want do because everything is already written in the LAMB BOOK OF LIFE! So you can never say what you will and won't do. She doesn't know thats she's in jail nor does she know that her children are dead! Thats my friend and i love her to death no matter what my God is a forgiving God and i have already forgave her and as well prayed for her. So please dont judge that's God job! FREE MICHELLE HAWES XOXOXOXO

    I don't think that she should be freed, but I do feel that she needs a lot of help.Everybody have hard times and looses it, but that is the time for prayer.What Jeanette needs is a lot of prayer for her and from her.I know as a mother of threethat it is hard to lose your kids, but it have to be harder to know that you are reason why.God bless her and I hope and pray that she can be forgived.
