Public Intoxication Arrest

On Sunday, September 03, 2017, at 12:49 a.m., the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office located a female laying in the alley south of the Graettinger Fire Station at 104 North Washington Avenue, Graettinger. Following an investigation, the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office arrested Stephanie Hanson (36), of Emmetsburg, charging her with public intoxication, which is a simple misdemeanor. Hanson was transported, without incident, to the Palo Alto County Jail and booked in to await her 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.
