Thirty-five-year-old Urbana resident Kinzie Lee Schwab, who was convicted last Thursday, August 25 of criminal sexual assault and child pornography by a Champaign County jury, is currently at large.
Schwab was not present for any of his trial dates, which started last Tuesday, August 23. He made a court appearance last Monday, August 22 in Judge Tom Difanis’ courtroom with his legal counsel, Urbana attorney Evan Bruno, who was told to be ready for the Tuesday trial before Judge Hugh Finson. Even though Schwab failed to make an appearance during the trial days, the jury was instructed to disregard his lack of appearance and move on with the trial as planned. Bruno said he did not know of his client’s whereabouts, saying, “Myself and the Urbana Police Department have been in contact with several of his family members. From what we know, they don’t know where he is.”
