On 02/23/2018 at 3:02 p.m. the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office served Blake Michael Gibson, 21, of Emmetsburg, with a valid Palo Alto County warrant. The warrant charged Gibson with 6 counts of Sex Offender Registration Violation, all Class “C” Felonies. Gibson was being held in the Palo Alto County Jail at the time of his arrest on unrelated charges. Gibson was unable to post the $10,000 .00 cash only bond. Gibson remained in the custody of the Palo Alto County Jail to await his initial appearance before a magistrate on these new charges.
A criminal charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
