On 09/07/2018 at 5:23 p.m. the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office arrested Cody Allen Hout, 20, of Milford on a valid Palo Alto County warrant charging him with two counts of 3rd degree Sexual Abuse, both Class “C” felonies. Hout was unable to post the $10,000.00 cash only bond. Hout was transported, with incident, from the Dickinson County Sheriff’s Office to the Palo Alto County Jail. Hout was booked into jail to await his initial appearance before the magistrate.
A criminal charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
