Much of public sentiment surrounding the Robert Schwander is that Schwander is somehow dragging it out by bringing appeals, and because court dates are getting pushed back.
Let’s review the facts.
It’s the court that sentenced Schwander for a crime he was not convicted of. Three different times. The prosecution has done nothing to ask the court to follow the law. Schwander has only exercised his constitutional appeal rights and won. Every single time. Three different times. It is the court that has strung things out and caused the victim’s family additional pain by refusing to do their jobs and follow the law.
Grand Traverse County Prosecutor not-elected Noelle only made things worse by failing to do the paperwork to have Schwander brought from prison for his sentencing date. It’s perhaps her biggest or most notable ongoing case, and she failed to check on the paperwork. So the sentencing date is pushed back. But somehow it’s Schwander that is dragging things out for the family?
