On Monday, January 13, 2020, at 5:00 pm, the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office arrested Christopher Hamre (52), of Wallingford, on a valid Palo Alto County warrant for violation of a no contact order, which is a simple misdemeanor. Bond was set in the amount of $500.00 cash only. Hamre was transported, without incident, to the Palo Alto County Jail. Hamre was able to post bond and was subsequently released and given a court date to appear at a later date.
A criminal charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
