On Friday, December 08, 2017, at 10:44 p.m., the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office arrested Cody Olson (19), of Spencer, on a valid Palo Alto County warrant for contempt of court- failure to appear. The warrant stems from an original charge of public intoxication, which is a simple misdemeanor. Bond was set for the warrant in the amount of $500.00 cash only. Olson was unable to post bond and was subsequently booked into the Palo Alto County 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.
