Hanna Schacht arrested in Wisconsin

On January 15th I wrote about a plea deal in a vehicular homicide case. The article was titled "Plea deal, no jail". The driver of the car was Hanna Schacht.

Today a reader sent this: "This same woman just killed another man in Wisconsin. Drunk driving. He was a good friend. Nothing else I can say..."

Wisconsin Court records indicate that Hanna Schacht was charged in Portage County in a case filed September 16 (yesterday). Details of the case are not available yet. Madison and Chicago papers don't contain articles yet. Presumably, the Northwest Herald will find her arrest newsworthy.

Whom do we thank at the McHenry County State's Attorney Office, along with Judge Graham, for their leniency in McHenry County Court? Maybe if Judge Graham had thrown her in jail for the 120 days, instead of staying her sentence, her behavior might have changed.

Since Schacht is charged with DUI, I wonder how many of the court-ordered urine drops she successfully passed. Her next court date is January 14, at the one-year mark for her conditional discharge. Since she didn't keep her nose clean, will Judge Graham call her in and jail her? The McHenry County case is No. 12CF000457, if you want to look it up.

NOTE: The Northwest Herald now has an article about Schacht's arrest. She apparently had a 0.15% BAC after the crash.
