On 10/03/2017 at 2:35 p.m. the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office arrested Christopher Clayton Wise, 29, of Emmetsburg on a valid Black Hawk County warrant for Violation of Probation on the original charge of Theft in the 3rd Degree an Aggravated Misdemeanor. Wise was transported to the Palo Alto County Jail without incident. Wise was unable to post the $15,000.00 cash/ surety bond and was subsequently booked into the Palo Alto County Jail to await transfer to Black Hawk County. Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office later served a Palo Alto County warrant on Wise for Harassment in the 1st Degree, an aggravated misdemeanor, holding a $2000.00 cash only bond.
A criminal charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
