On July 11, 2017, at 3:10 p.m., the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office arrested William Bailey (36), of Schaller, Iowa, on a valid Palo Alto County warrant for violation of probation. The warrant stems from an original charge of possession of controlled substance 2nd offense, which is an aggravated misdemeanor. Bond was set for the warrant at $1,000.00. Bailey was transported to the Palo Alto County Jail, without incident. Bailey was unable to post bond and was subsequently booked in to jail to await his initial appearance before a magistrate.
A criminal charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
