Skip to comments.Dog The Bounty Hunterís Political Foe Facing Charges In Crash That Killed Pregnant Woman

A key backer of a political bill that could put Dog the Bounty Hunter and other bail bondsmen out of business is facing a grand jury probe that could put her behind bars for a car crash that killed a pregnant woman.
Colorado state Senator Suzanne Williams is a key supporter of a bill that would allow convicted criminals to post their own bail, effectively replacing bounty hunters like Duane Chapman with the government. The problem, say opponents of the bill, is that it would flood society with criminals and no one to chase them down and bring them back to face charges if they skip court appearances.
Chapman and wife Beth have been in Colorado opposing the bill and trying to meet with its sponsor, Sen. John Morse, but he has ducked them. Beth mobilized her 140,000 Twitter followers with a series of Tweets about the bill and how Morse has been ducking the Chapmans.
Now, the Denver Daily News has revealed shocking details about Williams, who supports the bill. She was involved in a crash on Dec. 26 and a Texas grand jury will likely review the case, according to district attorney David Green.
Williams has pushed tough legislation in Colorado requiring seatbelts but the Denver Daily News reported that investigators said her son and two grandchildren, who were in the car at the time of the crash, were not wearing seatbelts. Williams lawyer says he is confident no criminal charges will be filed against her.
The paper also says the initial investigative report claimed Willams moved one of her grandchildren into a safety seat after the accident raising questions of a coverup.

State Sen. Suzanne Williams veered into oncoming traffic on the evening of Dec. 26 on a highway in Hartley County, Texas, striking a GMC Yukon carrying a pregnant Texas woman, say police. The woman, 30-year-old Brianna Michelle Gomez, died from injuries caused by the accident...
Williams two grandchildren were riding in the back of her Honda CRV not fastened into their safety seats, as is required by Texas law...
Williams grandson, 3-year-old Tristan Charles Williams, was ejected from the CRV during the accident. The report indicates that he and his 7-year-old brother were lying down in the back seat of the vehicle prior to the accident.
But rather than wait for authorities and emergency crews to respond, Williams moved her grandson Tristan Williams from the roadway back into his safety seat immediately following the accident...
The move by Williams to move her grandson into his safety seat after the accident raises questions because of Williams involvement with seat belt and child safety seat legislation.
Williams has pushed for legislation in Colorado that makes seat belt offenses a primary offense, allowing officers to stop cars if passengers arent wearing seat belts. Seat belt violations remain a secondary offense in Colorado.
Grant her bail so that the Dog can go after her.
Hmmm, no mention of party... favors criminals over honest law abiding citizens... cover up in a criminal act. Could she possibly be a RAT? Of course, she is.
If any doubt remains, the fact that she's a statist, lying, hypocrite should remove it.
Oh. My. God. She really did this? For real?
Bills for thee.....but not for me.... so saith Suzanne..
it is not reported:
She is a Democrat from SE Denver & Arapahoe county !
Waiting for Texas Grand Jury and more
MSM covering for their own
Another Democrat hack hypocrite nanny stater. I’m on Dog’s side
Now that's 140,000 people that have absolutely NO lives.....sheesh
What do you want to bet she was texting or talking on a cell phone when she swerved? She could have killed her own grandchild picking him up and putting him in the seat.
Unbelievable. Granted, it could have been a freak accident, it doesn’t say. But it sounds Ted Kennedyish.
Few bail skippers care about state lines, so she must be thinking of something new at a Federal and international level. The Federal/World Bureau of Dogs?
This is talking about Mrs. Dog, not the legislady.
I know.....that’s why the surprise.
OMG!! Who on Earth would move a child off the highway?? Simply horrible.
Sorry, I found that part a little funny.
I’m a bit disappointed that the Yukon didn’t ‘finish the job’. It sure sucks to have a nutcase at such a high level of power.
