Houston Special Needs Attorney and Guthrie for Sheriff "Campaign Coordinator", Candice Schwager, allegedly struck a motorcycle with her vehicle, injuring the female passenger on June 16th. To make matters worse, it is reported that she fled the scene. It has been reported that she has been charged with Intoxicated Assault with a Motor Vehicle.

Updates will probably follow.

*** Update ***

According to 3 sources identifying themselves as friends/relatives of the victims, both the male driver and the female passenger were injured in the accident. According to the sources, the passenger has been treated for her injuries and released from the hospital while the driver was life flighted to the hospital and remains in the hospital with serious injuries, including head trauma.

The incident report indicates that the police seized 2 white pills from her car as well as a prescription bottle, however, there is no indication what kind of pills Schwager was in possession of.

Court documents indicate that Schwager has been charged with an F3 Felony for Intoxicated Assault with a Vehicle. An F3 Felony can carry a punishment of "A. Confinement in the institutional division for life or for any term not more then 10 years or less then 2 years; B. A fine not to exceed $10,000..."

The complaint against Schwager only lists the passenger and does not mention the driver, tho more charges could be filed in the future. Court records indicate that she has been before the court before on charges of DUI in 1997. Schwager's next court appearance appears to be 7/24/2012.

It does not appear that Guthrie 4 Sheriff has made any public announcement or comment on his "campaign manager's" current charges or continued status with the campaign. Tho, announcing a golf outing/fundraiser for September is one way to handle it.

*** Update ***

The Guthrie4Sheriff campaign has apparently turned their twitter account off in an attempt to scrub any proof that Schwager was officially part of the campaign. It is clear to outsiders that recent comments that Guthrie made walking back Candice's involvement were done before Guthrie4Sheriff had covered all of their bases, leaving embarrassing tweets to contrary in public view.

The male victim continues his fight to recover and is making very slow progress. There is a benefit planned for the victims that will be held later in July.

I pray that Schwager's victims recover fully, that Candice get plenty of mental health and addiction help while sitting in jail, and that Guthrie lose badly to Carl Pittman in the Sheriff's race. His use of "Pit Bull Schwager" is repulsive.

*** Update ***

This has been moving pretty slowly, which is certainly expected, especially given Schwager's need to draw things out for maximum attention value.

On Tuesday, July 24th, Schwager and her Attorney appeared for arraignment, but apparently her Atty asked for and was granted a delay. Currently it looks like the next court date is Aug 21st. Additional charges still have not been filed, but are still expected. Court doc's show that she is currently barred from driving, drinking alcohol or using drugs and is being monitored by the courts for compliance.

After taking a break from social media, Candice has resurfaced with new accounts, but the same story line. Be warned, she is already posting on topix again, albeit with different handles.

The Guthrie campaign has ignored repeated questions about the real timing of Schwager leaving his campaign, her official status/position at the time she left, and details of the business arrangements that were agreed upon between Schwager and Guthrie for her "services" to his campaign. Guthrie4Sheriff initially put the departure as late summer/early fall of 2011, while follow up comments forced Guthrie to admit that she was officially working on the twitter/social media aspect much further into the campaign. Twitter timeline, from the now removed @guthrie4sheriff, puts her departure as no sooner then June 1st of 2012.

August 21st has come and gone, and once again, a request by defense to delay---is someone hoping that if they delay enough that newley elected officials could get her a "get out of jail free" card to make this all go away?
