On Saturday, August 05, 2017, at 10:30 p.m., the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office arrested Jarad Johnson (40), of Graettinger on a valid Palo Alto County warrant for failure to report to jail due to a revocation of a pre-trial release. The warrant stems from an original charge of sexual assault in the 3rd degree, which is a class C felony. There was no bond set for the warrant. Johnson was transported, without incident, to the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office and booked into the Palo Alto County Jail until his plea and sentencing hearing scheduled for October 13th, 2017.
A criminal charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
