Warrant Arrest

On 3/9/17 the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office arrested Michael Lee Wetherell (23) of Paullina on a valid Palo Alto County Arrest Warrant for a Probation Violation on an original charge of Assault With a Dangerous Weapon. There was no bond on the warrant and Wetherell was placed in jail to await 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.
