On “America’s Most Wanted” television show, suspects often get identified after their pictures are aired. Such was the case when Larry Craig’s daughter, Shae Suzanne Howell appeared on ABC.
Craig can add the arrest of his daughter to the list of unintended consequences he is racking up. This sad event proves that “no good deed goes unpunished.”
After her national TV appearance, a GUARDIAN reader put two and two together and sent this little unsolicited nugget late Wednesday from the Ada Sheriff’s warrant list:
“You would think the Boise police would go ahead and arrest the “stand up” character witness’s Larry had with him Saturday!”
HOWELL SHAE SUZANNE
BOISE, ID 10/11/70 M0615800 4/18/2007 1 M CONTEMPT OF COURT $500 BOND
(The GUARDIAN has removed the address printed on the Sheriff’s site at the request of Shae Howell’s ex-husband who said he has no connection with Shae and wishes to distance himself from the entire situation. We will not entertain ANY comments on the subject of divorce or details of any pending criminal matters.)
We checked with officials at the jail and according to their records the contempt of court warrant is active. It will be difficult for the coppers to ignore such a high profile wanted person–especially after she appeared on national television defending a U.S. senator. Chances are she may not have been aware of the warrant and until she became a television personality, few people (including the coppers) linked her name to Craig.
Advice from the GUARDIAN: a quick visit to the jail with five crisp “Big Ben” $100 bills will prevent Shea from being arrested and keep the publicity to a minimum. We suggest she surrender quietly at Barrister Street unless it is her “intention” to pay a fine and face possible jail time.
We offered this advice August 30, “Urge your man to QUIETLY resign and remain out of the public light. Love him, get some medical and mental treatment before he does further harm to himself. Be pro active and forget about a “wait and see” strategy.” They didn’t listen then, maybe they will now.
The original offense was UNLAWFUL ENTRY and MALICIOUS INJURY TO PROPERTY.
Shae Howell has appeared at the Ada Jail and posted $500 bond. She is no longer “wanted.”
