Julie Bilotta has had a difficult journey in many ways.
After finding herself pregnant and in jail she became a National news story after giving birth to her son Gionni in the Ottawa Detention Centre in her cell which has led to legal issues for the much maligned facility. Her case is still front of the courts and she’s represented by Power Lawyer Lawrence Greenspon.
After the tragic death of her son, she started to turn her focus to the law and changing her life. She had the opportunity to talk to people across Canada, and was engaged to speak about and share her story.
Now Ms Bilotta is focusing on starting a career for herself in the law, and is hoping to attend school in Ottawa next Fall, and about leaving Cornwall Ontario, ending that chapter of her life.
We talked about abuse of the justice system by Crown attorney’s and the system in general.
She also shared that her son has been her inspiration and why she’s challenging herself to make her community a better place.
Julie took some time to sit down with CFN and talk one on one about this new chapter to her life.
