Pregnant teen out on bail

A pregnant teenager who was put in jail to ensure she would testify at the domestic assault trial of her boyfriend was released on bail yesterday even though the court isn't finished hearing her evidence.

Noellee Mowatt, 19, who has been at the Vanier Centre for Women since April 1, was released on her own recognizance on $500 bail.

She was taken into custody after a warrant was issued for her arrest when she wasn't in court for her boyfriend's trial on March 20.
