On Thursday, December 29, 2016, at 03:01 p.m., the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office arrested Robert Boll (42) of Dow City, Iowa on two valid Ida County warrants for contempt of court. The warrants stem from original charges of speeding and driving without a license= both simple misdemeanors. Bond was set at $300.00 cash or approved surety for each warrant. Boll was taken into custody, without incident, at the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office. Boll was unable to post bond and was booked into the Palo Alto County Jail to await transportation to the Ida County Jail.
A criminal charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
