Domestic Assault Arrest

On 7/7/2018 at 5:13 p.m., the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office received an emergency call regarding a domestic situation that had occurred at 1108 Merrill Street #1 in Ruthven. Upon an investigation into the complaint, the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office arrested Lenard Keith Schiller Jr, age 35 of Ruthven, on the charges of Domestic Abuse Assault, a misdemeanor offense. Prior convictions of Domestic Abuse Assault resulted in a mandatory charge of an Aggravated Misdemeanor being placed on Schiller Jr. Schiller Jr. was transported to the Palo Alto County Jail without incident where he was held until his initial appearance before a judge.

A criminal charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
