TAMPA — Angel Adams, who at age 39 gave birth to her 16th child after her arrest for battery of a police officer in May, was spared a trial Monday and allowed to enter a pretrial intervention program.
Adams has been in and out of the news since she was found living in a motel room with 12 of her children in 2010. She was briefly jailed after she refused to tell a judge whether she was pregnant. At the time, she was not.
But she was eight months pregnant last May when Tampa police came to her home to question one of her sons about rock-throwing in the neighborhood. She and a daughter ended up in a scuffle with the officers.
