Court records show she was released from jail on $3,000 bail Dec. 28 and her next court appearance is a pre-trial conference scheduled for 3:45 p.m. Monday, Feb. 1.

According to court records:

Pierce County Sheriff's Department investigators were notified by the jail on Dec. 9 of a letter written to Wade Swenson by a law firm in Roseville, Minn. The address label and return address were handwritten, which caused jail officials to become suspicious, as jail policy indicates all legal correspondence must have an embossed or type return address.
