Schwermann just kept smiling, though, while he talked with his half sisters, who were both struggling to keep a conversation going for 45 minutes. They talked about plans for a family trip to Florida this summer and Katie Schwermann's new "kicks" (tennis shoes). The conversation swayed to lunch buffets twice the Nicollet County Jail's breakfast hadn't been enough for Michael Thursday morning. He was still hungry.
Peery said Heinz and Michael spent a lot of time together.
His bail has been set at $50,000 with conditions or $25,000 without. A judge has agreed to reconsider the bail amounts if Nicollet County social services gets involved, said Allen Eskens, Michael's attorney.
She didn't find out about the calls, which were made from their dad's cellular telephone, until after Michael had been arrested. Police took him into custody near Norseland after his car ran out of gas on Highway 22.
"Now Michael has nobody to turn to," Peery said. "The one person who told him what to do and when to do it is gone."

Others agree with Peery's assessment, including George Motto of St. Peter. He's married to Jacqueline Schwermann's daughter and has known Michael for more than a decade. Motto said Michael needs help taking care of himself, a role his father filled until the beginning of this year.
Motto wasn't surprised by the chase that landed Michael in jail. Michael had been cited in April, June and July for various traffic violations including speeding, having unsafe equipment and not having proof of insurance.
They say Michael is harmless and ran from police only because he didn't understand the seriousness of what he was doing. Michael said he graduated from high school last year; he did so through special education courses.
Michael was told the carwasn't insured with the hope he would quit driving it, Motto said. The car was insured, however, in both Michael's name and his dad's name, he added.
Katie and her sister, Krista Moser, say they're concerned about their half brother being kept behind bars. He's been in jail since Feb. 11, the day he was arrested after allegedly leading police on a high speed chase from St. Peter to Mankato and back.
the mother of Katie Schwermann and Moser, said Michael has been "lost" since his father died. Michael's mother doesn't live in the area and his father's last wife, Jacqueline Schwermann, lives in a nursing home.
Other things left to Michael by his father include a television, video cassette recorder, stereo, three boxes of white and gold dishes and the 1997 Chrysler car he was driving when he was arrested. Nicollet County Attorney Michael Riley has filed a civil suit requesting the car be forfeited to law enforcement because it was involved in a high speed chase.
club in St. Peter. She had met Michael many times since he started coming to meetings with his dad as a child, she said.
Michael had been living with his father, 64 year old Heinz Schwermann, until Jan. 7. That's the day he found his dad dead from heart failure at their home. Since then, he's lived with his grandparents in Nicollet.
The first time the sisters had a conversation with Michael as adults was when the family met to plan their father's funeral in January. It was immediately clear Michael was not a typical 19 year old man, Katie said. She said her brother should have been getting help through county social services long before he got into trouble with police, even before he graduated from high school.
His father's will left him almost everything, even though Michael has at least four other half siblings including Katie Schwermann and Krista Moser. There's a few hundred thousand dollars in insurance money, retirement investments and real estate.
"I don't think he should even be in jail," Katie said after her visit with Michael Thursday. Feb. 11. That's the time period St. Peter police report hitting speeds of 100 mph as they were chasing Michael through town. He was going the wrong way through traffic on Highway 169 and lost control of his car at least twice, according to the criminal complaint filed two days later.
It's a new relationship for the siblings. Katie and Krista used to see Michael and their dad occasionally when they were younger. That small amount of contact faded to almost nothing as they got older, though.

"He followed his dad everywhere," Motto said. "What his dad did, he did. He can't make rational decisions on his own, as this car chase showed."
Now that Michael is in jail, Katie said she gets calls from him every day. He never talks about Air Max Blue much. He only calls to say hello and listen to her talk, much like the jail visits go, she Nike Air Max 95 360 Black
She's contacted Riley's office and told an assistant county attorney about Michael's situation. The lawyer told her he suspected something because Michael cried in court during his first appearance. Riley and the assistant county attorney handling Michael's felony fleeing charges, Paul Tanis, said they can't comment on the case.
Michael's sisters wonder if he ran from police because he thought the car wasn't insured.
Chase suspect a 'lost' man
"They should have been involved from the beginning," Katie said. "But my dad would not admit that his son needed help. That was his boy."
