Woman jailed on bail-order violation

Bedford resident is vocal critic of judicial system

NASHUA – Audra Lynn Schwoerer, the 51-year-old former Nashua woman in a long-running feud with the state Judiciary and family court system – and a history of arrests for violating restraining orders against members of her family – was charged again this month and jailed on $20,000 cash only bail.

Schwoerer, whose ex-husband, a Nashua resident, called police last week after Schwoerer allegedly called him twice in violation of the no-contact order, also is ordered to comply with all orders issued by the family court or face additional charges, according to documents filed upon Schwoerer’s arraignment late last week in Nashua District Court.

She faces two counts each of violation of protective order and stalking, all Class A misdemeanors. They stem from allegations that she called her ex-husband on Aug. 12 and again on Aug. 16, and left messages asking him to “unblock your phone so I can reach you,” according to police reports.

Schwoerer, currently of 11 Spring Hill Road in Bedford, apparently wanted to make arrangements with her ex-husband to bring items to him that belong to the couple’s two sons, and in the second call said she was “looking for instruction on dropping off some personal property” to the sons, the reports state.

By allegedly contacting him, Schwoerer violated two no-contact orders, one issued in December 2016 by Goffstown District Court and the one issued in early April by Manchester District Court.

In last week’s case, the arresting officer said in his report that he served Schwoerer with the arrest warrant on Thursday at the Valley Street jail.

Nashua District Court Judge James Leary, who arraigned Schwoerer Friday via video conference from the jail, scheduled a pretrial conference for 8:15 a.m. Sept. 14 in the Nashua court.

It wasn’t immediately known whether Schwoerer subsequently posted bail pending the hearing.

According to Bedford Patch, Schwoerer ran unsuccessfully for a seat on the Bedford School Board in 2015, finishing fourth in a four-candidate race for two open seats on the board.

She has appeared on local TV and radio shows over the past several years, at times alleging the family court system is corrupt.

Last year, she posted online a roughly five-minute recording of her phone conversation with a Bedford police officer, in which she accuses officers of “strong-arming” her elder son and taking him “by force from our property against his will.”
