Rachel Summerlin,

Candida's Mother

In May 2013, Summerlin was sitting in the parking lot of the Cobb County Jail when a deputy told her to turn down the music in her car.

Moments later she sped off, hitting two deputies. They both recovered.

In September, Summerlin was found guilty but mentally ill.

Nov. 2014 - Candida was sentenced to 61 years 

December 2014 - Guardianship of Candida was given to her parents because she was found to be mentally ill.

Candida remains incarcerated today.
