On 10/19/2020 at approximately 12:54 A.M. the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office arrested Heather Peterson (43) of Graettinger, Iowa pursuant to two valid Palo Alto County arrest warrants. Both warrants were for failure to appear on the original charge of animals running at large, and both warrants carried a $500.00 cash only bond amount. Heather was transported without incident to the Palo Alto County Jail where she was served with the warrants. Heather then posted the combined $1000.00 cash only bond, and was released to appear in court at a later date.
A criminal charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
