Lubbock, Texas–Michael Schneider, 22, has some serious anger issues. Or maybe he just doesn’t like kids. Either way, he should never be allowed around children again. Out on bail for beating the shit out of a 2-year-old in 2006, Michael is under arrest again…for beating up a 6-month-old. On October 27, 2006, Michael and his girlfriend at the time, Kelly Searles, were both arrested and charged with child abuse. Kelly’s 2-year-old child was severely beaten. The child suffered nine broken ribs, cigarette burns to his foot and back, and both of his tiny arms were broken. Though the child has made a good recovery, he is permanently brain damaged. The boy’s grandfather, Bill Searles, believed his grandson was being abused and neglected. The home the child was living in was filthy and littered with dirty diapers. He was so concerned with his grandson’s safety and well-being, he contacted CPS just one month before the 2-year-old was hospitalized. CPS visited the house just days before the child was beaten and found nothing wrong. ‘We did everything by the system to help protect these kids in the beginning through CPS,’ Bill said. Grandpa Bill now has custody of that 2-year-old child.
Michael’s bond was set at $500,000, and he bonded out in December 2006. Kelly Searles made a plea deal and is currently serving a 15 year sentence in state prison. Two and a half years after the fact, Michael still hasn’t still hasn’t had his day in court on that particular case. W.T.F.
On March 25, Michael was arrested for badly injuring his girlfriend’s 6-month-old child. It has been reported that the baby’s injuries are not life threatening. However, the injuries were bad enough that he had to be placed in intensive care. The baby’s mother left him alone with Michael while she was at work. When she returned home, she found her son badly beaten and suffering external injuries.
Once again, Michael Schneider is being charged with child abuse causing serious bodily injury. This time, his bond has been set at $250,000. His current girlfriend has not been charged.
I have a sinking feeling that we will be seeing Michael again in the future.
