Alleged Schweitzer seat slasher David Markwardt was officially charged last Friday in court for "malicious injury to property resulting in damages that exceed $1,000." The felony carries the possibility of a 1-5 year prison sentence and up to a grand in fines. Markwardt applied for a public defender but was denied one for not being poor enough to exercise that option (he owns two condos at the base of Schweitzer). He said in court the ACLU was considering taking up his case. [Bonner County Daily Bee]
