On Sunday, October 01, 2017, at 6:45 pm, the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office arrested Rachel Haley (40), of Spencer on a valid Palo Alto County warrant for contempt of court, failure to appear. The warrant stems from an original charge of assault against a peace officer, which is a serious misdemeanor. Bond was set in the amount of $500.00 cash only. Haley was transported to the Palo Alto County Jail, without incident. Haley was unable to post bond and was subsequently booked into jail to await her initial appearance.
A criminal charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
