Home detention revoked for Hagerstown woman charged with attempted second-degree murder

HAGERSTOWN -- The pre-trial home detention granted to a Hagerstown woman on Thursday was subsequently revoked because charges against her disqualify her from the home detention program, a Washington County Detention Center official said.

Shawnee White, 32, formerly of 15 Park Ave., is not eligible for pre-trial home detention because she has been charged with a crime of violence, Lt. Edward Long said. White is charged with attempted second-degree murder, first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and malicious destruction of property, according to court records.

On Thursday, Washington County District Judge Mark D. Thomas ordered that White be released into supervised home detention after her attorney revealed she had been diagnosed with lung cancer.

White had been held at the detention center since Aug. 7 after police said she struck her husband with an SUV twice after an argument, according to charging documents filed by Washington County Sheriff's Department Deputy J.L. Barnhart. Witnesses said White struck her husband with the SUV once, he punched her in the face, and she backed up and then struck him again, then drove through a fence with him on the hood of the SUV, Barnhart wrote.
