Jacobson was transferred from the custody of the Kossuth County Sheriff’s Office to the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office. Jacobson was booked into the Palo Alto County Jail and held until his appearance before a magistrate judge.
A criminal charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
